Program Notes
All applicants must have a valid passport by the program’s application deadline. Your passport’s expiration date must be more than six months after the program ends. If you do not have a current passport, apply through the U.S. State Department. It takes an average of 6-8 weeks (2 months) to process a passport.

Traveling and studying abroad at this time poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad must be prepared to adapt to evolving situations 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 which are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) and world events 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.
Program Description
This unique program will enhance students’ understanding of international business and human behavior among the world’s fastest growing economies and broaden students’ global exposure outside of typical study abroad locations. Culture in Africa is rich and extremely diverse, and more dissimilar from the U.S. than most wealthier countries. This degree of foreignness means mind-blowing cross-cultural experiences that students will talk about for months upon returning and never forget for the rest of their lives.

Students will complete textbook-oriented course material and assignments asynchronously online before and after the in-country portion of the program. For two weeks in-country, students will tour African businesses and civic organizations, interview business leaders, visit villages and homes, interact with locals and their families, and enjoy cultural excursions.

Check out more information here to get excited and learn more about our travels around the country, what Tanzanian’s are proudest of about their country, and some of the amazing culture, people, sites, and wildlife.
