Portugal, South Africa, Spain, London... studying abroad is one of the best paths to increasing global and intercultural awareness, developing self confidence in unfamiliar settings, and distinguishing yourself to potential employers.
The Study Abroad program, which is open to students across campus and students from other schools in the region as well, continues to expand in light of the globalization of business. The program allows you to learn about how businesses operate overseas – including many American corporations with offices and operations overseas – and gain confidence in traveling abroad.
Credit: Each trip is three hours of credit. It is possible to earn six hours credit by combining two trips.
