Study abroad provides firsthand experience in a foreign setting, strengthening the connection between classroom concepts and real-world business and culture. Understanding the dynamics of international business and the global economy is at the heart of the Haslam curriculum. All students are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity during their course of study, but it is required of those pursuing a collateral or concentration in international business.
While there are many ways to study abroad and earn credit, a number of Haslam faculty offer mini-term and summer study abroad business programs in various locations including England, Ireland, Italy, Spain and Australia. These faculty-led programs are unique in that they take full advantage of HCB faculty expertise while offering courses that are valuable – and in some cases, required – to business students.
To learn more about the importance of study abroad for business students and to begin discovering your options, please visit Haslam’s new Office of International Programs and Study Abroad located on the mezzanine level of the Haslam Business Building (HBB 256 – firstname.lastname@example.org). Additional information can be found on the programs abroad website of the University of Tennessee’s Center for International Education.
