Incorporating international experiences into your time at university is an amazing and challenging opportunity that can help you set and reach fulfilling personal, academic and professional goals.
Through studying or working abroad, interning for an international organization, or participating in courses and projects with global components, students have the opportunity to discover and learn about their chosen career paths around the world.
The GIP (Global, Immersive and Professional) Programs team manages the Hussman School study abroad exchanges and helps coordinate other international opportunities in the school. We are available to meet with students to discuss our global programs and offer assistance with global opportunities outside of the school.

The Hussman School offers short-term global immersion programs that give students an opportunity to better understand media markets around the world.
Students may also have global opportunities as part of other Hussman School courses. The school is constantly exploring ways to incorporate travel and global awareness into classes. Current courses that give students the chance to go abroad include:

Interning abroad is a great way to combine a global activity with resume building professional experience. It is a challenge to arrange an international internship and there are many issues to consider and hurdles to jump. However, for many students who managed to arrange such an experience, the hard work paid off and they had a valuable professional and personal experience.
There are many ways to secure an international internship from study abroad programs that include an internship as an integral part of the program, to independently sourcing and arranging one, to using a third party internship company. There are many questions and issues with any option that should be fully considered. Whichever approach you decide on, lining up an international internship takes time and the process should be started many months in advance.
The university works hard to make international activities accessible to all students. UNC-Chapel Hill and the Hussman School recognize that financial concerns sometimes prevent students from taking part in global opportunities.
UNC Embark has a comprehensive database of funding opportunities from both inside and outside UNC-Chapel Hill. Depending on the funding source, this money could be used to pay for Hussman School programs, UNC affiliated study abroad programs, or independently organized international initiatives.
