The MSU Career Services Network International Corporate Tours (ICT) are a unique experiential learning opportunity that brings students into actual global work environments.
Both ICT Europe and ICT China are two week long treks (non-academic credit) that expose students to a range of cities, industries, work settings, and cultures while helping them develop professional skills, identify talents, clarify interests, strengthen teamwork competencies, and form friendships.
The ICTs are designed for freshman and sophomore students of all majors; however, the opportunities are open to students at all undergraduate levels. This is the perfect early career development program for those students interested in traveling internationally, networking with employers and alumni, exploring various professions, experiencing cross-functional workplace roles, touring company facilities, discovering new cities, and making new friends. The intent of ICT Europe is not to secure internships and full-time positions at these international locations. However, for ICT China, Chinese national students are encouraged to participate as one of the goals is to connect these students with our partner companies in China for internships and full-time positions.
Along with unique perspectives into their organizations, host organizations provide team challenges that engage students in project simulations. Students learn to work effectively in groups and present solutions to real problems. Traveling between sites, students dialogue with career practitioners about what they have discovered.
