Global Business Project
The Global Business Project (GBP) is a graduate-level course offered to graduate students from a consortium of CIBERs at several member universities led by the University of North Carolina. The course has a unique nature in that it provides the students with the opportunity to increase their international business and language skills through guided hands-on experience in markets critical to U.S. competitiveness. Students from different universities are placed into teams which work virtually for seven weeks prior to an intensive two-week consulting project in the host country.
