Study Tours

The European Study Tour is a linchpin of the European internship/study abroad programs and serves as a comprehensive introduction to the European Union and European markets.

Teams of two students are assigned an important business topic and an EU capital. You and your partner travel to the country, conduct interviews with government officials and business experts, and complete as much on-the-ground research as possible. Topic examples have included EU enlargement and the Euro financial crisis. During part two of the study tour, you and your fellow participants gather in Brussels to attend lectures and meetings with European Parliament members and to debate your findings with fellow study abroad students at a mock parliament.

The Asian Study Tour gives students the opportunity to explore the business and culture of the region during a weeklong program. Travelling as a group, students undertake a mixture of classes, meetings with local and international businesses, and cultural activities designed to help them expand their knowledge of business in the Asia Pacific. In 2017, the tour destination is Thailand.
