With globalization spreading faster than ever, businesses benefit from recruiting candidates with experiential and international exposure. This paper will address the role that various types of experiential research and travel experience plays in building global business competencies among students. Some research techniques that will be addressed include surveys, interviews, net searches, projective methods, and study abroad. A unique study abroad program that combines global business and cultural immersion will also be dealt with in the paper. These competencies will make graduating students more marketable and valuable to the organizations that utilize their services.
