An International
Perspective
You’ll get a close-up look at the global
economy in action thanks to Clarkson’s
Global Study Program, which ensures that
all our business students have international
experience prior to completing their degrees.
You’ll have the option of participating in the
International Exchange Program, in which
you’ll spend a semester studying abroad,
or in a faculty-led, two-to three-week-long
immersion experience.
“Clarkson graduates find creative
solutions to today’s complex challenges
in our global and technology-driven
workplace. They are excellent
communicators and work well on diverse,
multidisciplinary teams.”
— A.G. Lafley, CEO and President
Chairman of the Board
Procter & Gamble, retired 2010

Three things: Experience, experience and more experience.
We talk with companies regularly, and their recruiters continually stress how important it is for graduates to
have solid business experience before they begin their careers.
At Clarkson, you’ll be working with the Career Center from your first semester to identify valuable growth
opportunities. Our Career Center will help you find paid internships and co-ops, and help you with job research,
interviewing skills, and developing resumes that corporate hiring managers can view online.
Recruiters in today’s global village also stress the importance of having international experience. Our Study Abroad
program has exchange agreements with over 39 universities in 20 countries.This program gives you the
opportunity to spend a semester learning from the best international business programs outside the U.S.,
including those in Australia, Hong Kong, Austria and Mexico.
Business student Josh Fogarty ’12 studied abroad in Italy, had a summer e-commerce co-op at
Johnson & Johnson (J&J), and worked with local small business owners through an internship with
Clarkson’s Reh Center for Entrepreneurship. Josh’s supervisor at J&J was so impressed with his work
ethic and skills that today Josh has a full-time job and a solid future at J&J.
