“We are extremely excited about the GPro program,” says Jess Thornton, Director of Marketing and Student Enrollment. “Global work experience is vital to your resume if you want to truly set yourself apart. As students, you are no longer just competing with your fellow graduates, you are competing with the world. So with our new product comes the opportunity to leverage your resume while growing both personally and professionally. GPro allows us to help student-athletes immerse in the local culture in two ways- through their sport and their jobs.”
Director of the GPro program, Robert Novorolsky, has lived this experience first-hand as an expat working in both Berlin and Amsterdam with international startups. His expertise extends to travel, culture, student mentorship, and, of course, sport, which will give GPro the flexibility and connectivity needed to be successful. Rob is also currently the Head Coach of the Women’s Lacrosse German National Team.
