AIESEC – Another source for international experience and funding

February 18th, 2011 by Keith Clausen

When you are trying to afford an international education, you need to look at every potential source of funding.  We recently featured a story on Rotary scholarships, which are an excellent, worldwide source of funding.  Another worldwide source of leadership opportunities and funding, particularly through paid international internships,  is AIESEC. Present in 107 countries and with over 50,000 members, AIESEC is the largest youth-run organization in the world.

The AIESEC international internship program offers an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on international experience.  For instance, the Cornell University chapter of AIESEC is bringing in 34 international interns. United Auto Workers is providing paid internships for 32 of them, and Cornell is employing the other 2.  Read the full story about the Cornell AIESEC interns in the Cornell Sun.

Business Schools Need to Globalize!

(from Bloomberg Businessweek)

Business schools are lagging behind in preparing students for careers in an increasingly global world and need to become more strategic about how they weave cross-border content into their programs, according to a report released today by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

The study, titled “The Globalization of Managements Education: Changing International Structures, Adaptive Strategies, and the Impact on Institutions,” was presented to deans at an AACSB conference in Phoenix. It suggests that business schools need to make deeper and more sustained efforts across the curriculum to help students understand the challenges of conducting business in different cultures and countries. Robert Bruner, chairman of the AACSB Globalization of Management Education Task Force, which wrote the report, calls the study “a real wake-up call” for business schools.

February 4th, 2011 by Keith Clausen

Rotary clubs around the world are a great source of scholarships for international study, and for any student trying to study abroad, Rotary Clubs should be top on the list to research any relevant scholarships. For instance, Rotary Clubs in the State of Georgia (USA) have sponsored the Georgia Rotary Student Program since 1946.

The GRSP brings in 80 international students per year for one full academic year, and pays their tuition, book allowance, meal allowance and on-campus room, at a college or university in the State of Georgia, USA. To be eligible, you must be between 18 and 25 and be an undergraduate student in your home country, and have never studied in the USA. In addition, you must be recommended by your home Rotary Club. Visit the Georgia Rotary Student Program website to learn more about their international scholarships.

Also, you can read a good story about Benjamin Ikaal from Kenya, who is a Rotary scholarship recipient studying at Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia.
