Students on tripFaculty-led Study Abroad Trips

Each summer, the Paul and Virginia Engler College of Business offers an approximately two-week immersion learning experience for students that is hosted and created by Paul and Virginia Engler College of Business faculty and staff. The trips are a mixture of academic, business/practitioner, and cultural experiences that will allow students the ability to see new places and people while still being in an academic environment.

Previous trips have went to the following countries:
2019 -Denmark, Sweden, and Norway / China (Beijing and Shanghai)
2017 - Germany, Austria, & Switzerland
2016 - India
2015 - Denmark, Sweden, and Norway
2014 - Germany, Austria, & Switzerland
2013 -England (London)
2012 -Denmark (Copenhagen) & Sweden
2011 -England (London)
2010 -Canada (Vancouver, Vancouver Island, and Whistler)
2009 -Russia (Nizhny Novgorod and Moscow)
2008 -Russia (Nizhny Novgorod and Moscow)

Travel cost and tuition & fees totals ranges from $1,800 to $4,000, depending on location. In the later part of the Fall semester, students will be required to submit an essay explaining their desire to participate as well as supporting documentation for how it will benefit their current learning path. A good candidate for our study abroad program is a student who desires to experience business concepts in an international setting, generally with a GPA greater than 3.200, who is flexible with plans with the understanding that there will be challenges when traveling abroad, and who can follow guidelines and local laws while having fun and gaining new experiences.

Contact Dr. Robert King for information or to submit an application.

International Business Seminars (IBS) Trips

Due to the success of the 2019 China Study Abroad program, the College of Business started working with International Business Seminars to offer a variety of trips for each student’s individual preferences and needs. Below is a breakdown of some of our thoughts as to the main benefits that each program can offer students. Some of the main things to note are the potential opportunities to see different areas at different times and be around other students from a variety of institutions. IBS has also made a $750 scholarship to any WT student wanting to participate in their upcoming Winter and Summer Open enrollment programs! While the dates vary, the next deadlines can be found on their website.
