Greater Louisville International Professionals is proud to be one of the co-producers and founders of the Amazing Global Markeplace ® , a high school program that serves to build an educated and globally-minded regional workforce. Mission StatementAmazing Global Marketplace® (AGM) is an international business-focused educational program designed to engage high school students in a challenging problem-based learning environment to inspire them to complete their high school diploma and pursue an educational pathway for working in international business.Background: The historic growth of global communication, trade and cultural exchange paired with Louisville’s position as a growing logistical transport hub, banking and medical center, and regional international presence creates an opportunity to take leading steps in building the region’s globally-minded workforce.
Amazing Global MarketplaceTM (AGM) is an international business-focused educational program designed to engage high school students in a challenging problem-based learning environment to inspire them to complete their high school diploma and pursue an educational pathway for working in international business. Selected students are put into simulated international business scenarios – having to navigate international travel, negotiation, procurement, management, communication, culture and currency exchange. During the half-day of activities, students encounter native speakers from different countries and have to interact with them in order to complete specific transactions. Each student participating in the AGM will be teamed-up with an employee-mentor from a real Louisville business that works internationally. Together, the student and mentor will pursue the completion of the real world international business scenario – requiring them to virtually “travel and work” in numerous countries. They will learn about their mentor companies, research international markets, work through a real-life international business scenario, make travel arrangements and negotiate with foreign companies to complete the scenario in an experiential World Campus.
The project will seek participation from classes with students that are already studying business or international-related course work. The goal is to motivate them to attend college and pursue international careers, increase their academic opportunities and make them productive contributors to Louisville’s future success. By bringing together diverse groups of motivated students to work together, the project will help build peer connections that encourage and enhance student’s interest in international learning and careers.Amazing Global Marketplace TM learning will take place in the classroom, at mentor companies and will kick-off and complete at Bellarmine University with participants “traveling” around the campus to complete their global assignments. The assignments, travel scenarios, currency exchange issues, cultural engagement, and other challenges will come from real world situations provided by experienced international business people from the mentor companies. The student-mentor teams complete their assignment and negotiate business, cultural and financial issues in a set time. The team completing their project with the highest number of points wins the competition. Each year, we seek the support of global companies, native speakers from over 8 countries, sponsors, and volunteers.
