Mission Statement
The mission of the Center for Global Business Programs is to enhance the global capabilities of Lubin students and faculty by providing high-quality academic and professional experiences, facilitating learning, and supporting applied research in the global environment.

Your International Campus in New York City
The Center for Global Business Programs provides international and domestic institutions an opportunity to differentiate their offerings through a New York City-based module. Institutions chose from a variety of international programs that fit their needs and provide their students with an "only in New York" experience.

International Field Study Courses
International field study courses provide students with the opportunity to gain international academic experience. Along with pre-trip classroom sessions, students travel abroad for up to two weeks, participating in corporate visits, meetings with governmental leaders and roundtable workshops with globally recognized academics. Destinations include countries throughout Europe, Asia, South America, and Africa.

International Travel Scholarships
The Center for Global Business Programs offers scholarships to Lubin students who are enrolled in international field study courses. These scholarships are made available through the Figueroa Family Fund and the Nancy and Gene Celentano Fund, and are awarded during the fall and spring semesters. To date, the Center has awarded over $850,00 in scholarships to eligible students who have demonstrated need and merit.

Semester Abroad at Lubin
The Semester Abroad at Lubin program is designed for both undergraduate and graduate students who wish to study business for one semester at an AACSB-accredited American university located in the heart of the Financial District in Manhattan, NY. Students can enroll in up to five graduate courses (15 credits) or six undergraduate courses (18 credits) at a fraction of the cost of other private American universities, including visa sponsorship, post-program internship visa extension, and classes with matriculated students. Undergraduate students enjoy a flat-rate discounted tuition rate, approximately 50% off Pace’s regular tuition rate.
