Our student body is considered one of the most diverse in the world. It consists of students with different backgrounds and experiences.  Each of our students learns to work, respect, and thrive in a global, diverse, inclusive environment.

Our students are required to acquire at least one global experience.  This can be achieved by participating in an internship with a multinational organization, taking the GLOBE microfinance course where students interact with multinational entrepreneurs to provide micro-loans, taking global destination courses that include traveling abroad, see and experiencing how business is contacted abroad.            

We instill in our student's social responsibility by requiring them to be involved in Academic Service Learning projects.  As such they are learning of the positive social impact they can have.
