Thompson Global Internship Program

The Thompson Global Internship program provides an extraordinary experience for LCoB students to live abroad while earning credit and completing a project for a renowned international organization, Crown Worldwide Group. Students work in teams with other similarly qualified students on a significant and meaningful project at Crown's headquarters in Hong Kong or at one of its other many global locations. Given the Crown Worldwide Group’s numerous sectors and extensive operations, students may work in a wide range of business functions and areas. Crown Worldwide Group generously funds student travel expenses, accommodations and provides a salary and per diem.

Faculty-Led  Programs
Faculty-Led Programs (FLP) are overseas courses taught by SJSU faculty from various academic fields for 2 - 4 weeks during the academic breaks of winter, spring, and summer. FLPs typically provide credits of 3 - 6 units. A majority of our programs satisfy upper division GE courses (Area R, S, & V) and major-specific courses. See the program list at http://www.sjsu.edu/gei/flp/programs/summer/index.html for a sampling of the exciting and educational FLP offerings. Many Lucas College students join programs headed up by non-Business faculty but we also have several excellent programs offered by Business Faculty. The College provides scholarships for FLP student participants (generally $500). Start by working with the FLP office and faculty leaders. Once you are accepted into a program, you will receive an invitation to apply for a Lucas College study abroad scholarship.
