CISB Student Leadership Opportunities

Students in the Certificate of International Studies in Business (CISB) Program gain valuable leadership experience through service to the CISB program, the Foster School, and the community. They organize major events, serve on boards, run meetings, organize outreach, and bring international business speakers to campus.
