MIZZOU INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE
Mizzou International Experience (MIE) is an educational program designed for high school students and educators around the world. We launched our first Career Exploration Program in 2016, and we are looking forward to continuing our tradition of helping students determine what career path they want to pursue and guiding them in self-discovery.
This program is designed and developed by Mizzou K-12, College of Education at the University of Missouri (Mizzou).

COLUMBIA, MISSOURI, U.S.A.
As Missouri is located in the center of the U.S., Columbia is located in the center of Missouri.
Columbia is consistently ranked as one of the best known towns in America in a number of ways - The Most Hardworking Town, Best College Town, Best Places to Live - and is known for its scholastic, entrepreneurial, and artistically-strong business communities.
With a population of 120,000+ residents, the city truly comes alive when its 45,000+ students arrive from all over the world in the fall to attend Mizzou, as well as the other higher education institutions in town.
Nicknamed the “Athens of Missouri” as a reference to its classical beauty and educational emphasis, Columbia maintains a safe and small-town environment, rich with multi-cultural opportunities, and is in close proximity to urban activities such as concerts, shopping, and sporting events, only 90 minutes away in St. Louis and Kansas City.
Missouri is located in the geographic center of the U.S., and is home to 10 fortune 500 companies.
Explorers will visit several of these companies during the career exploration program such as Boeing, Monsanto, and Anheuser Busch.
