Global Business Short-Term Study Abroad Courses
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.
The BUSI788 one-credit class serves as the prerequisite for the three-credit
BUSI798 time abroad and is mandatory. Each BUSI788 is coupled with an associated
BUSI798 course. For example, students wanting to travel to Dubai will register
for BUSI788M on Testudo, and then will be automatically registered for BUSI798M
Students in the BUSI788 sections will be registered automatically for their
associated BUSI798 class abroad, and only those in the BUSI788 course can be
registered for its BUSI798 counterpart.
