Getting a global activity off the ground is an exciting endeavor, but how do you keep it running smoothly? Ask anyone who has headed up an international program—operations can be tricky and, if not managed properly, can have reputational and financial consequences.

Fortunately, our campus is rich with resources and experts. Collectively, Boston University sponsors programs in over 90 countries, has more than 600 people abroad, oversees multimillion dollar budgets, and supports a wide range of programs. By leveraging the experiences of colleagues and best practices in the field, you can become familiar with important health and safety, legal, employment, financial, visa, and technology considerations, and other tools for success.

When your program is running smoothly, find related programs, events, and other global efforts in the Discover section. While you’re at it, make sure your project is included. Don’t forget to visit Engage to find ways to grow your global project, or start another one altogether!
