What We Do
The Global Training Initiative provides study, training, and research opportunities for students and professionals across the world. We've developed several short-term Fulbright Programs and have also worked with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the World Health Organization. Our programs span all topics and time zones.
Overseas students can take classes at NC State University in the fall semester and earn a certificate in US Culture and Higher Education while completing their course of study. Our unit also coordinates special programs for key overseas partners such as accelerated master’s degree programs, academic foundation year programs, as well as semester-long courses and short-term programs.
The GTI delivers customized training programs for North Carolina organizations and groups of overseas professionals and students. Our programs apply the expertise of our faculty and industry leaders to an international context with a solution-driven focus.
Our unit also supports faculty and departments in their international engagement efforts.
Since the Global Training Initiative (GTI) launched in 2008, our student and professional programs have added at least $21.5 million to the university and the local economy. Learn more about the economic impact of our programs.
