International Management


“The Malaysian Work Study Program was very beneficial to my education and work experience. Not only did I get hands-on work experience in an international setting, I had the opportunity to be exposed to the Malaysian culture as well as practice my cross-cultural management skills.” Don Nguyen BMgt 2007

“I learned so much not only about other countries but about myself. It was an excellent educational adventure.” Dani Dwinnell BEd 2007, BMgt 2007
