Lincoln International Business School’s Global Experiences aim to provide students with the freedom to explore different ways of broadening cultural boundaries, developing business acumen, and cultivating a range of skills sought after by employers.
There are several opportunities for students to engage in our global activities which include the Global Certificate, Global Week, and international business challenges. At Lincoln, we aim to promote the understanding of cultural differences and demonstrate how embracing an intercultural outlook can enhance both students' learning and social experience during their time with us.
The Global Certificate is available to all students in Lincoln International Business School and has been created to enhance cultural perspectives and improve global understanding. To fully appreciate the culturally diverse environment that the University offers, and the learning experiences available, the Global Certificate aims to recognise the benefits of attending the many internationally focused events available to help students to make the most of their time at the University.
Global Week is a celebration of the multicultural community that exists within Lincoln International Business School through events such as the International Opportunities Fair, Language Taster Sessions, Kitchen Takeovers, and Cultural Exchange Sessions. All students are welcome to get involved with events across the campus and to take part in competitions and celebrations of diversity and culture. All events in Global Week can provide points towards the Global Certificate.
International Opportunities Fair is part of Global Week. The day consists of employer stands which provide opportunities for international summer work, international internships, study abroad options, and volunteering abroad. There will be talks on the day as well as the chance to meet students who have already studied abroad. Companies who have attended include BUNAC, Think Pacific, UUki, CCUSA, Smaller Earth, Pagoda Projects, CRCCASIA, Frontier, Travel Teer. Come along and find out where you can travel to!
The Global Masters Business Challenge is open to all Lincoln International Business School postgraduate students. The Challenge is a team-based business simulation event that provides participants with the opportunity to act as a Board of Directors who take responsibility for improving the performance of a company.
