In a rapidly globalizing world, the need for international experience is becoming more and more significant. One way for business students to gain such experience is through studying or interning abroad. Imagine studying alongside French and international students in Normandy, France, or taking classes at University of Stellenbosch Business School in Cape Town, South Africa. Travel to Spain and learn about Mediterranean business practices, or live in one of the largest cities in the world in Seoul, Korea. These, and many more programs, are open to you. Please contact the International Ed Office at 615.460.5500 for more information.
