"The Study Abroad India Trip was an eye-opening, life-changing experience!"
- Scott Merk
College of Business Administration is offering an incredible trip to India and England as part of the Study Abroad program. Explore and experience India and England with other students from The University of Akron. This program exposes students to the issues that affect the success of work in today’s flat world & global marketplace. India’s position as the global center for IT and BPO services provides a source for diverse viewpoints on these issues. The diverse culture of India will provide a unique and rich learning environment. Students will interact with local students, visit several global companies and listen to global experts apart from visiting cultural & historic monuments.
Extensive opportunity for learning about India!
Cost for the trip is $2,000 to $2,200 (depending on the number of registered students) excluding airfare (which could cost from $1,700 - $1,800). This includes 3 star accommodation, lectures, company visits, sightseeing, travelling in India, and a significant portion of meals. You can extend your stay in England for additional cost.
Several scholarships up to $400 are available for students who are majoring in Business.
"India is a land of extremes… Both hot and crowded, charming and magical. It’s a region that has spent thousands of years leaving an indelible mark on the rest of the world, and a young country that is still rejoicing in a peaceful revolution and a newly liberalized economy. Books and pictures can give you little snapshots about what’s really going on there, and sometimes teachers can take you a little bit closer. In order to truly feel it, though, you have to see it for yourself."
