Annapolis, MD, August 13, 2015 -- International Education provider Global Experiences Inc. announced today that it has been named to the 34th annual Inc. 5000 list, a prestigious annual ranking showcasing the fastest-growing private companies in America. The 2015 list was the most competitive in the list's history. The news comes amidst a record setting year that has also seen the Global Experiences win back-to-back industry-nominated innovation awards for its international internship programming.
"I'd like to thank our amazing team for their drive and focus, and our fantastic globally engaged alumni from around the world" said co-founder and CEO Emily Merson. "We strive to be leaders and innovators in the higher education community offering a new way for young professionals to find a career they love and the skills they need in the new global economy."
As a leading provider of career development and international internship programs, Global Experiences grew by 55% between 2011 and 2014. More impressively, Global Experiences has built upon it's award winning programming and has been able to provide life-changing professional and intercultural experiences for over 5000 alumni. These alumni now work in top companies around the world.
Contributing to this growth has been growing partnerships with universities throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia. "We love working with universities because it opens up international internships to a new demographic who normally wouldn't be able to afford studying or interning abroad. Universities are able to offer custom academic internship programming, and non-traditional study abroad students are able to make themselves more marketable; it's a win-win." said Enrollment Director Alex Paisner.
Global Experiences will be featured in the September issue of Inc. Magazine and online at Inc.com / inc5000, and will be accepting the honor at the Inc. 5000 Conference in October.
