Global, Wherever You Are

The business world is globally connected — and so are our students and faculty.

Academics Abroad

Each year, hundreds of students in our degree programs study abroad in more than 150 locations around the world. Undergraduates can complete a semester or year abroad while earning credit toward their degree. Our summer programs send groups of undergraduate and graduate students to exciting global business centers in Europe, South America, Asia and Australia to study current management issues. And our dual degree programs offer both graduate and undergraduate students immersive international experiences.

Our faculty also work across borders, partnering with leading international business schools and undertaking research that drives economic prosperity on a global scale.
