All College of Business and Innovation students - all majors - are strongly encouraged to study abroad during their undergraduate degree program. Study abroad programs can assist students in the development of academic, intellectual, personal, professional and cross-cultural skills.
Many business students participate in one of the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) programs. The University of Toledo is a member of USAC which offers opportunities at 37 sites in 25 countries including Turin, Italy; Brighton, England; Bilbao/Gexto, Spain; Gold Coast, Australia; and Chengdu, China. Summer, semester, and year-long programs are available. Students typically enroll in a combination of business courses (taught in English), non-business courses (taught in English), and foreign language courses (at the student's option).
In addition to the USAC programs, there are study abroad programs led by College of Business faculty members. These trips are often 2-3 weeks in length. Examples of College of Business faculty trips include eastern Europe, western Europe, and Asia. Opportunities vary from year to year. The International Business program has recently gone to Japan over Spring Break to study business culture in the country. Be sure to check your email and student newsletters for updates regarding these special travel opportunities.
Other options for students interested in studying abroad are trips sponsored by UT's Foreign Language department. These programs are especially helpful for students seeking intensive language programs.
For more information on any of the programs outlined above, make an appointment to meet with Deb Krohn by calling 419-530-2087. Additional information is also available from UT's Study Abroad Office and from the USAC central office.
