The College of Business Administration encourages all its students to consider a study abroad experience. The advantages to be gained by living in another country for a summer, a semester, or even an academic year will benefit you personally and professionally as you gain a broader perspective on today's global business environment.
Study abroad programs are offered through the Office of International Programs and through the CBA.

"One of the greatest benefits from my graduate classes was the amount of group work that was required. … My group projects always required a classroom presentation. After presenting multiple times, I was able to improve my public speaking skills tremendously. Working in groups … improved my overall social skills because of the level of participation that was required. Working in groups forced me to speak up and offer ideas."
