Partially funded by visionary founder and former McCormick & Co. executive Jim Albrecht, GPS aims to connect 25 globally-minded college students to international corporations in the region.
Students should be goal-oriented, professional, open-minded and have a passion for global work.
The GPS Program is designed to prepare Maryland college students for the competitive job market upon graduating. By leveraging our vast regional network, 25 top students from various universities around the region will have the opportunity to get their foot in the door of nine different globally-minded companies, jumpstarting their professional network. Concurrently, this cohort of students, deemed Albrecht Fellows, will strengthen their professional skills through a series of supplemental development workshops.
By participating in GPS, Albrecht Fellows enhance their network and global knowledge, become more marketable, and increase their likelihood of being hired upon graduation.
