For College Students
Global Pathways for Students (GPS) Program
Today’s college students will be the next generation of world leaders. Many lack access to a vibrant and robust business network. Leveraging WTCI’s breadth and expertise, the Global Pathways for Students Program provides the knowledge and tools needed for college students to succeed in a diverse and increasingly competitive employment marketplace. Participants get an up-close and in-depth look at some of Maryland’s most innovative global businesses.
