The business and academic world is much different today than even a generation ago. The Internet and other technology allow for worldwide interaction amongst individuals so they can easily communicate correct market techniques and understand research implications. Globalization opens up a world of possibilities for both businesses and academia, but also presents the challenge of interacting with people from diverse cultures. The Watson School is providing ways for students, alumni and faculty to benefit from its international network.
The Engineering Community at Mountainview offers incoming freshman the opportunity to meet fellow engineering students, receive academic support and explore their chosen field through trips to local industry and educational partners such as Lockheed Martin and Cornell's High Energy Synchrotron.
