About International Night:

International Night serves to help undergraduates from all majors and backgrounds to learn more about international opportunities. In light of social and political differences, our distinguished guests will elaborate on particular hardships they have faced while working internationally.

The speakers will highlight international business through their many years of personal experience. Through both formal speaking and casual conversation after the event, International Night serves to highlight their commitment to international business and to the greater Penn State community.
