Each year, the International Business Society participates in an annual corporate visit to gain access to, tour, and learn more in-depth about a particular company. This spring, the society’s trip was to Thomson Reuters in Times Square, New York.
Thomson Reuters was chosen because of its high level of interaction in the international business world. The company serves a global customer base as the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals.
“The students met with Benjamin Goodband, VP of Investor Relations, and learned about Thomson Reuters’ business structure, company culture, and methods for product development,” said Kelly Kennedy, career coach and instructor at the School of Business Career Center.
The students also received an in-depth introduction to one of Thomson Reuters’ products and a demonstration of how it impacts business decisions in real-time.
“Exposure to Thomson Reuters has given us a fresh, in-depth perspective on how international business is conducted in this ever-evolving business environment,” said Courtney Hong, one of the students who participated in the tour.
