Study Abroad with your own UNI Business Professor

Virtual programs will be supported too! Business students enrolling in virtual study abroad courses with a business professor will be supported at $500. Scholarships of $200 will support business students enrolling in a non-business virtual study abroad course. Students must apply to receive funding.
Global Skills: Latin America and Beyond (Winter - Virtual)
This course will be held during January 2021 and is designed as an introduction to business in Latin America. It will focus on the history, culture, politics and economy of Latin America from a global business perspective. Students will have an opportunity to virtually interact with entrepreneurs and business managers from both Central and South America in various industries such as microfinance and agriculture.
Join Mary Connerley for a new May 2021 study abroad experience in Greece, a major force in the world economy. Combine the best of both worlds: tours of historic sites in the birthplace of western civilization and visits to organizations that represent the entrepreneurial spirit of a European country on its way to economic recovery. Program participants will visit start-up companies and established industries, explore ancient archeological sites, and enjoy the natural beauty of the Greek islands. These experiences will provide the student participants the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and capacity for working in globalized communities and learn vital skills for successful interactions in international locations and/or with international associates.
Satisfies UNI Capstone requirement (Global Skills).
