Bridging the gap for North Carolina businesses

The Global Training Initiative provides custom business solutions for North Carolina organizations. Each year, we connect hundreds of professionals, students, government officials, scientists, researchers, scholars, and interns to the university and North Carolina through our programs. By tapping into NC State's global networks, the GTI harnesses the university's resources to provide cross-cultural training and professional development programs.
