As an undergraduate, you have a unique opportunity to earn business credit on study abroad during your sophomore or junior year.
The International Undergraduate May Programs enable undergraduates with an interest in international business to travel for three weeks of intensive study and exploration. All students receive three graded credits for participating in this study abroad program in May. Its timing should not preclude participants from accepting summer internships.
Once you arrive at your destination, daily classroom instruction in English will familiarize you with the history, language, economic environment, business culture, and foreign-investment dynamics of your host country. Visits to state-run
factories and local or multinational companies will enable you to tour manufacturing facilities and to speak with managers about their technological innovations and production challenges.
Each group will take day trips to nearby cities and historic or culturally important sites. During your free time, you will be able to explore local shops and markets and attend sports and performing arts events. Your daily interactions with other students and local residents in your host country will help you broaden your cultural understanding and sharpen your language skills.
