Students will have the opportunity to take part in either an international trip during their spring break or an elective course held at the end of their second year.
The international trip will include company visits, guest lecturers, and local tours throughout the host country. The goal of the course is to immerse students in the culture of the host country, to expand the student’s global understanding, and to explore international business opportunities. Following the trip, students will be required to submit an assignment on their experience for a total of 3 credit hours.
Travel expenses for the international trip option are NOT included in the total cost of the program; however, the tuition for the course is included.
Students who do not participate in the international trip will be enrolled in the Advanced Business Focus course conducted at the off-site location and during the end of the second year (typically in May & June following graduation.) Students will earn 3 credit hours in fields such as Investment Management, New Product Planning & Development, or Database Management for example.
