Pathways to Study Abroad in International Business and Culture
The International Business and Culture program expects students spend a semester or year studying abroad. Exciting opportunities are relatively easy to arrange through the Arcadia University College of Global Studies. Courses taken at foreign universities through the College receive Arcadia University credit and generally fulfill Undergraduate Curriculum, including major, requirements. Arcadia’s IB&C students have studied on every continent except Antarctica. Students have found a variety of programs in a wide array of locations, such as St. Andrew’s School of Management, Universitst Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona or International Business in Shanghai.
Since most required School of Global Business courses are offered in Fall and Spring semesters, study abroad is all about planning. You can schedule study abroad in any semester, except spring of the senior year, which is when the Capstone course is taken. It is possible to schedule multiple consecutive or non-consecutive semesters abroad and still graduate on time. It is also possible to do an internship abroad in the Fall, Spring or Summer.
Since it is important that students plan ahead for study abroad, they should consult with their advisers as early as possible to make their intentions known to the School of Global Business and the Office of International Affairs.
