International Student Exchange


FGCU’s "Second Circle" International Model
Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) Lutgert College of Business (LCOB) developed the "Second Circle" International Model. The basic notion is to use LCOB international academic activity to connect to a circle of business and cultural environments beyond the university in both countries. The program uses a College initiated international educational partnership to reach out and involve an interface with the business network in the partner country. This successful concept has resulted in partnerships with the schools listed below.
