The David Eccles School of Business offers study abroad programs in Paris, Rome, and London. While abroad, students can enroll in International Finance, Strategy, Accounting, Business Law, or Principles of Marketing, with an option of completing an additional independent study course. Preference is given to Business Scholar students. Students have the option of combining the one week international trip with the 8-week study abroad, receiving up to 10 credit hours during their summer abroad.
The Business Scholars program offers students the opportunity to participate in an 8 day long international trip after their freshman year. The Business Scholars International Trip takes place the beginning of May and students have the choice of traveling to Europe or Asia. Business Scholars visit companies with a global focus, participate in academic lectures, and enjoy cultural experiences. Students have visited companies such as Cannon in Tokyo and Grant Thornton in London. Academic experiences have included learning about innovation and trade in the UK, exploring the history and future of the Eurozone, and analyzing the Korean economy. Students receive 1 credit hour for the international trip.
Business Scholars has helped me tremendously in my pursuit as a business major, allowing me to network and meet new people, opening the door for new opportunities. I have been able to travel both around the country and internationally and had great experiences with both.
