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.

Lyon Program

The Weissman Center for International Business, an academic center of the Zicklin School of Business, is pleased to announce its winter intersession study abroad program, “International Business Practices and Policies: A European Perspective,” to be 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 you 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.
