This course is unique at Georgia Tech and nationwide. Global Career Lab is part career course, part advanced German culture course, and all about breaking down boundaries. Using design thinking approaches, we cover the tools and best practices of effective long-term career planning. We also explore the German-speaking professional and scientific world of Atlanta, from research to business and education.

Bringing it all together, students learn how language works with technical education to enable an exciting global career – no matter your major. Learn how to leverage your German in a variety of contexts, hone your professional vocabulary, develop essential humanities and power skills, and prepare for job and internship applications.

In this course, you will: 

  • Meet German-speaking experts in a variety of fields.
  • Join Atlanta’s German-speaking professional community.
  • Build highly marketable intercultural competence and communication skills.
  • Use design thinking to plan your career and create job search materials.
  • Set yourself apart in the global marketplace.

We are grateful for the support of the Halle Foundation.

In 2018, this course was offered as a three-day bootcamp, Global Career Intensive. More information about the 2018 iteration of this program is available here:
