Study Abroad

Faculty members in the division have worked closely with the College Study Abroad coordinator to tailor semester-long study abroad schedule that matches the individual student’s interests. Our students have visited and studied in diverse countries including France, Ireland, England, China, and New Zealand to complement their business studies with international experience.

Notes from the Field

  • Xiaoyi He

    Junior in the B.S. in Business Management Program 
    Concentration: Finance

    “I went to Rome, Italy for the spring semester of 2013. Because I am a business student, I took Globalization and Macroeconomics for my major. I also took Photography and Italian classes to enrich my Roman experience. Although I had mentally prepared myself for a culture shock, I still needed to make effort to adapt to a new environment. That was the fun part of the study aboard experience, as I got to live the real Roman life style: tasting the most authentic Italian cuisine and talking to people with completely different cultural backgrounds about almost everything. I also took the opportunity of living in Rome for a semester, to travel around Europe. The study aboard experience opened up my eyes; it was definitely a life changing event for me.”


  • Alexandra Kaprielian

    B.S. in Business Management, Class of ‘13
    Concentration: International Business

    “The best thing about studying abroad is that I got to immerse myself in a city that I love. Paris was an amazing place to spend a year and it allowed me to easily travel all over Europe while perfecting the language that I love and meeting new people from all around the world. While I was in Paris I only studied French and completed my Minor there. The best way to learn a language is to be completely immersed.” 


  • Amy Pekal

    B.S. Business Management, Concentration in Media Arts Management, B.A. Art History
    Class of ‘15

    “For the fall 2013 semester I chose to study abroad in Florence, Italy.  I am a double major in Business Management and Art History, and so, I could not think of a better place to spend a semester. Florence was the heart of the Renaissance and no matter where I turned, there was always an interaction with art. The journey taught me more about myself, than any classroom could. I passionately dove into a new culture, learned to speak a new language and gained an appreciation for the world beyond New York City.  I believe it is important to be a citizen of the world: everything is accessible, if you want it to be, and foreign places should always be embraced.”
