Mission Statement

To train the next generation of global leaders providing a hands-on, activity-based learning program for high schools that teaches the significance and the basic concepts of globalization, international economics and what it takes to make highly interdependent nations competitive in today’s dynamic economic environment

  • The benefits of international trade
  • Specialization and comparative advantage
  • The forces of supply and demand in the global economy
