Welcome to the Global Training Initiative
The Global Training Initiative (GTI) at North Carolina State University enhances international partnerships among NC State students and faculty, businesses in North Carolina, and people around the world through numerous short-term international programs. The GTI also provides custom training solutions or partners with NC State units or North Carolina businesses on international grants and short-term professional training programs. We serve international students (at either the undergraduate or graduate level), current NC State students, NC State faculty and working professionals. The GTI is part of NC State's Office of International Affairs.
The GTI provides short-term study and internship opportunities for international students who have completed at least two years of college or university and scholars.
The GTI also partners with universities and programs in Asia, Europe, and South America to bring their students to NC State.
Current NC State students can help new and visiting international students integrate into the Wolfpack community.
GTI provides specialized training programs to meet the needs of businesses and organizations competing in the global economy. Drawing on the expertise of our world-class faculty, administrators, and industry partners, our programs provide content specific training in more than 100 fields.
The GTI is an officially recognized training center with the Chinese government's State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs.
The following is a short list of ways faculty can get involved in GTI programs:
The GTI also partners with other campus units and departments on international grant programs.
Hundreds of international students and professionals come to NC State University through GTI programs each year. We are always looking for community volunteers who are interested in connecting with these visitors.
