BUSI788/BUSI798 Short-Term Courses Abroad
Courses abroad are comprised of a BUSI788 one-credit class that takes place
in the DC metro area and a three-credit BUSI798 course that takes place abroad.
The BUSI788 course educates students prior to departure about the culture,
history and economic climate of their destination; students research the
companies they will visit while abroad, and make presentations or other
deliverables that analyze current situations in their chosen region and country.
While abroad on the associated BUSI798 course, the itinerary frequently
incorporates two or more company visits per workday, as well as various cultural
activities that facilitate understanding. Most courses have a detailed topic,
but all courses examine the macro picture and give insight into how to do
business in the country or region.
