GV2015The 2015 Global Village for Business and Industry results are in! Twelve FLEX alumni from ten FLEX countries are the recipients of this year’s scholarship funded by the U.S. State Department and administered by American Councils. This summer Iacocca Institute at Lehigh University will open its doors to over 100 interns from 52 countries to attend  this unique program Global Village for Future Leaders of Business and Industry.
