Winter Intersession Programs

Winter programs are usually 3-4 weeks in length.  The programs for the winter are usually available on the website by early September. However, please check with the Study Abroad Office if you are uncertain, or if the link below takes you to program information from the previous year. In some cases, the specific course for the program will be different from that of the previous year, so make certain that the course title on the syllabus for this January’s program matches the title in the Course Equivalency Database.

Salamanca Program

Baruch College sponsors a program of intensive Spanish language instruction in association with the Colegio de España in Salamanca, Spain.

Salamanca Program

January Graduate Business Program in Lyon, France

The Weissman Center for International Business, an academic center of the Zicklin School of Business, offers a winter intersession study abroad program, “International Business Practices and Policies: A European Perspective,” which is held in Lyon, France. The program, designed in collaboration with the School of Business and Management (l’Institut d’Administration des Entreprises, or IAE) at Jean Moulin University in Lyon, will examine business practices within the French and wider European context. This program offers graduate business students the opportunity to study alongside students from Lyon’s IAE, a degree of academic immersion largely unknown in programs of this type.

The program lectures and seminars will study the economic and political history of contemporary Europe, the institutions and policies of the European Union, and French business practices. Students receive credit for IBS 9793, Special Topics in International Business. Students interested in learning more about the program should contact the Director of Study Abroad, Dr. Richard Mitten, at richard.mitten@baruch.cuny.edu.

ATTENTION FEMALE ZICKLIN GRADUATE STUDENTS!

The Financial Women’s Association has generously endowed a fellowship for female graduate students who attend the January 2020 Study Abroad Program “International Business Policies and Practices in Europe,” in Lyon, France. All women who are accepted into and participate in the January 2020 Lyon program will automatically be awarded an FWA International Study Fellowship, which may be used to defray any costs associated with the Study Abroad Program.

Applications for the January 2020 program will be accepted through October 15, 2019.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Richard Mitten, Director of Study Abroad, at richard.mitten@baruch.cuny.edu.
