Residential life is an important component of a university education. This is particularly crucial for WBB students. All students will be provided with accommodations in university housing at each location, offering them the opportunity to meet friends from all over the world, understand different cultures and adjust to the local community. All three universities provide various residential hall options both on campus and off campus.
WBB students will attend three different universities, each with a unique academic structure. Each school will provide specific support to assist WBB students in making the transition from one campus to another, both from an academic and administrative point of view. WBB faculty advisors will also be available at all schools to help students choose a program of study that fulfills the WBB requirements and make plans that best fit their career aspirations.
WBB students will bond as a cohort and be able to explore the full range of extracurricular opportunities at each school. There will be activities designed specifically for the program, and students will be encouraged to get involved in the campus communities and take leadership positions in student organizations. They can try everything from case competitions and consulting work for non-profit organizations to athletics and martial arts. Of course, all three cities have abundant historical and cultural sites to explore, and their locations are ideal bases from which to make excursions to nearby cities and countries.
Career Service and Placement
One reason for creating the WBB program was to respond to the demand expressed by the business world for young managers with international training. In order to help WBB students successfully launch their careers, each school will endeavor to identify specific internship opportunities. WBB students will have access to career counselors and career development resources and activities at all three schools, giving them extra tools to become the drivers of their professional lives, whatever path they choose after graduation. WBB graduates will be well positioned for careers in a broad range of areas in the private and public sectors, for their own entrepreneurial initiatives or for graduate school.
