About Global Education Solutions
In our competitive world, higher education institutions and employers have come to understand that it takes more than a degree to be ready for the workforce. Today, employers seem to always be looking for graduates who, besides possessing technical knowledge and interpersonal skills, are able to work effectively as team members and efficiently communicate across cultures.
A growing body of research has shown that international professional development, study abroad, volunteer, service learning, and experiential programs not only improve graduation rates, but they also enhance employability.
Our Global Education Solutions services seek to provide higher education institution, companies, and local governments in the US and Latin America with international educational opportunities. Our services are informed by our combined twenty years of experience in higher education, intercultural program development, and international travel. Similarly, we have an expansive network of international higher education leaders, businesses, local government decision-makers, non-governmental organizations, and other pertinent agencies which allow us to provide tailor-made programs to our partners in the US and abroad.
