Long-term Study Abroad
Faculty members in the Business Division work closely with the College’s Study Abroad coordinator to tailor semester-long study abroad schedules that match 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.
Faculty-Led Travel Courses
Looking for short-term experiences abroad? If so, a faculty-led travel course is a great option for you. Faculty-led travel courses provide students with the opportunity to experience other cultures and learn about how business is conducted in different parts of the world. In the spring of 2019, 14 students enrolled in our Global Fashion Business course, had the opportunity to visit two of the fashion capitals of the world: London and Paris. There, they visited world-class museums and cultural landmarks, such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, The Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and the Buckingham Palace. Students also toured flagship stores of renowned designers such as Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney and learned about ethical production at a manufacturing facility.

“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.
