When I explored London for the first time, I instantly knew that it was the place for me. I matured so much and learned so much about myself that it made all the effort worthwhile. I can safely say that it was the best semester of my college life.

Global Internship Workshop: London (3 credits)  

The Global Internship Workshop is a unique and innovative opportunity for students to combine their internship placement (and living abroad) experience with a weekly in-class educational and mentoring experience (session), which aims to develop students' personal and professional skills while earning academic credit. The Global Internship Workshop fits in with CAPA's philosophy and practice of Globally Networked Learning, whereby students can learn about the social and cultural context of their internship placement and the host region and country, as well as other Global Internship Workshop themes, through comparative global analysis. At times, this analysis will be facilitated through a selection of CAPA Masterclasses given by leading professionals from a diverse range of fields. Thus, the weekly discussion-based sessions with their active learning approach, gives students the opportunity to discuss and analyze theories and models of work, critical thinking and organizational behavior and management in a cross-cultural context.
