To broaden their international perspective, students will participate in an International Study Trip. This course includes classroom experience as well as a trip to a foreign destination. While traveling students experience business visits, company, professional and government presentations as well as cultural learning. The international study trip is an invaluable experience and has proven to be a highlight of the program. Past trips have been to South Africa, China, Vietnam, the Czech Republic, Argentina, Chile, and Brazil. Destinations vary from year to year. The trip normally is eight to ten days long and usually takes place during the spring semester.
