Program Notes
The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees, tuition and flights (if purchase was advised by IGS).
Program Description
This program is focused on experiencing international business in continental Europe. It will be a complimentary course to BUAD 384 and 386 and is designed to enhance a student's knowledge of the materials in those classes by providing direct experience with the types of businesses or organizations that are studied in both classes (note that neither BUAD 384 nor 386 is a prerequisite for this program.

The emphasis will be on topics such as:

Political and economic environments facing business
Governmental Influence on Trade, competition, etc.
Marketing Globally
Tourism and hospitality
Export and import
International strategic choices and consequences,
Cultural competencies and constraints

Based in Paris and Brussels, students will reside in double or triple rooms with some meals included. Cultural excursions will be planned in addition to class and site visits in both cities. Many of those visits will overlap with the business aspect by looking into their operations, including an international airline (tentatively planned), the hotels we reside in, and tourist locations such as the Louvre, Versailles, Notre Dame, Left Bank, Eiffel Tower, Musee d’Orsay, Luxembourg Gardens, Champs-Élysées and other cultural sites.

This program is tailored to those interested in business management, marketing, hospitality and similar majors but will provide an experience in two historically important cities and their surrounding regions.

Watch this video to meet the Faculty Director!

The Program Fee includes housing, all program-related events and excursions, most meals, in-country transportation and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to Paris and from Brussels nor airport transfers in the U.S. This program officially begins when students arrive in Paris. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimated airfare.
