2017 Program Overview

The 2017 Global Link Program welcomed 15 ICU students to New York from July 3rd to July 29th. With a greater focus on exploring global careers, the 2017 program connected students to a variety of NY-based companies and organizations working in the media, communications, non-profit, law, and business sectors. Students were also able to connect with alumni living and working in US and learn from their post-university experiences and career paths.
