The Executive Experience Abroad
The Summer Australia Seminar is packed with incredible opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students looking to expand their international business education outside of the traditional classroom. While traveling abroad, students will learn about Australian culture, history, customs, politics, and international business practices. Most importantly, students will observe how these business practices are different from the United States.

  • Network with business executives by visiting global companies to learn about how business is conducted and the challenges that come from running a multi-national organization.
  • Earn university credit while applying the knowledge you've learned in the classroom to real-life business settings.
  • Gain a competitive advantage for your career by experiencing international policies, political climates, and international business environments while building confidence, cultural understanding, and an ability to adapt to a variety of situations.
  • Experience some of the world's most well-known attractions and destinations.
