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.
"Why you choose CBA: Great Reputation at an affordable price. What is the most Memorable Experience: All the projects and lectures and learning experiences. I met a lot of great people! Whom faculty member inspired you: Almost all the CBA faculty is AWESOME. They really care to help the students learn and succeed outside the school, not just pass them along the way. Dr. Owens and Dr. Thomas were exceptional teachers, they taught us so much about the real world and did everything they could to help us succeed in what we wanted to do in life after college. What the most Interesting Project: I worked with Goodyear in Dr. Owens Honors Marketing Class. How did CBA experience prepare you:I definitely have better communication and presentation skills. I have confidence that I can succeed in the real world against students from other schools."
