Global Summer School includes lectures, group work, and educational and cultural field trips. Students will also engage in career planning, professional development, and leadership training. At the end of the program, students will embark on a trip to either Chicago or the East Coast. It is a great opportunity for international students to travel to other states and embrace American culture.

Upon completion, all students will be awarded a certificate of Global Young Professional Program (GYPP) by the Visiting International Professional Program (VIPP) at MSU.
