Global Business Institute

The CAPA Global Business Institute is a unique partnership with the University of Pittsburgh’s College of Business Administration, a founding member of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.

Students are provided an intensive and focused study of the impact of globalization on international business practices. Upon completion of the program, students receive an accredited Certificate of Study in Global Business.

Each Global Business Institute location provides distinctive content specific to its host city; for instance, a focus on Asian-Pacific trade in the Sydney program or a focus on the European Union in the Florence program.

Through CAPA’s robust educational technology, students in all locations across the world are linked through a common network where they can share coursework and resources with each other. This approach makes the Global Business Institute truly global because it facilitates transnational learning opportunities. 

The [Global Business] Institute takes study abroad to the next level by allowing the students to embed themselves in the local culture while taking business courses and completing guaranteed international internships. It’s hard for me to express how strategically important to a student’s future career this will be.
