Are you interested in entrepreneurship and education, passionate about world travel and believe in the value of global experience? We are a mission-based social enterprise that is committed to teaching college students real skills that will give them a competitive edge in the global economy. To do so, we are changing the face of the study abroad industry by shifting its focus to experiential learning. We believe that today's students can do more than learn about Asia's political economy on a chalkboard. Why not learn, instead, how to build an Asian market entry strategy...and help a company execute it?
