Program Overview Note: Programs may open for applications before May 8, 2021. Please check program pages regularly or follow @UDGlobal on Instagram or Twitter for updated information on applying for a 22W study abroad program.

Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

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 CGPS).

This program is focused on experiencing international business in continental Europe. We will be spending 3 weeks in Paris, France, engaging in a mock trade mission. The purpose will be to learn about differing regulations, participating in site visits meeting potential trade-related buyers or agents and networking with them, and of course, tourism to learn about the market. We also intend on working with the students and faculty from the business department at the University Sorbonne Nouvelle to add academic value and peer networking. Students will reside in double or triple hotel rooms with some meals included. Cultural excursions will be planned in addition to class and site visits in the Paris region.
This trip will be tailored to your particular major. We will identify what that looks like after you have been accepted to the program, so you can develop a role that will meet your interests. 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. However, BUAD 391 will reference and use the text for BUAD 384 and 386). Any major is welcome and can build a unique experience for their interests in an historically, culturally and economically important city

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

The Program Fee does NOT include round trip airfare to Paris 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.

ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcomed and encouraged to study abroad, but should be aware that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
