The World Bachelor in Business cohort of approximately 50 students study at three universities located in major economic and cultural centers. Each year students move to a new continent, learning about and adapting to new living and study environments. They are supported through services available at each university, tailored to meet their needs as WBB students during this unparalleled experience.
Residential life is an important component of a university education. This is particularly crucial for WBB students. All students are provided with accommodation in university housing at each location, offering them the opportunity to meet friends from all over the world, understand different cultures and adjust to the local community. All three universities provide various residential hall options both on and off campus.
Since WBB students may face challenges due to the complexity of working with three different universities and the uniqueness of the academic structure, each school provides specific support to assist WBB students moving from one campus to another, both from an academic and administrative point of view. WBB faculty advisors are also available at all schools to help students choose courses and make plans that best fit their career aspirations.
Extracurricular opportunities and on-campus activities designed specifically for the program are available at each school. The unusual composition of WBB class groups and the program’s structure mean the group will spend a lot of time together, inside and outside the classroom.
Career Services and Placement
WBB graduates are well positioned for careers in a broad range of areas in the private and public sectors, in addition to their own entrepreneurial initiatives. In order to help students successfully launch their careers, each school endeavors to identify specific internship opportunities for WBB students. WBB students also have access to career development activities at each school.
