Are you interested in working with students from all over the world? Have you ever wondered how you can develop skills necessary to succeed in the new post-pandemic workplace environment?

 

We are now inviting applications for the Spring 2021 session of the Virtual Business Professional (VBP) Project offered by the Marshall School of Business at University of Southern California (USC).

 
Project Details:

The Project is designed to offer undergraduate students an opportunity to collaborate and work in a virtual setting with students from all over the world, and to develop cultural competencies, collaboration and leadership skills in Global Virtual Teams, and work with new AI technologies – all high on the list of skills in the new post-pandemic workplace environment. Students from different schools are placed in teams of 5-6 people to work on a consulting project. The top three projects are submitted to sponsor companies to select the winning team. Past companies included Amazon, Audi, Google, and Star-bucks. This Project will offer you an excellent exposure to collaborate with students from a diversified background and culture, and certainly will give your CV a competitive edge!
