Emory is home to more than 2,600 international students, and more than two in five Emory undergraduates participate in study abroad programs. Our graduate and professional students are taught to consider the world their classroom and are offered opportunities accordingly, from the Rollins School of Public Health's Global Field Experience program for MPH and MSPH students to the Goizueta Business School's mid-semester international modules for full time MBAs.

Global research

Emory hosts 1,200 international scholars and has active research and exchange agreements with more than 200 institutions abroad. Global Services offers concierge-level support to faculty interested in developing global projects. Emory's global research projects include the Emory Vaccine Center, the Lillian Carter Center for Global Health & Social Responsibility, the Emory-Tibet Science Initiative, and the Center for Global Safe WASH.

Global impact

From Ebola to Zika, Emory University is on the forefront of the fight against infectious diseases around the world. Other global efforts include Grounds for Empowerment, a social enterprise that encourages sustainable economic development within the coffee-growing communities of Nicaragua with a direct trade model that adequately compensates farmers for the time, skill and effort required to produce coffee beans of the highest quality.
