Why Every Business Student Should Study Abroad

The graduates of the UConn School of Business are entering a global workplace. There are a variety of opportunities for students to study abroad while completing undergraduate degrees to better prepare them for a career in a globalized business industry. In most cases, students are able to take a semester abroad without losing any time towards graduation. Discussions start early on between a student and their Academic Advisor to plan for an extraordinary experience abroad.
