Business Courses Abroad

All credit-bearing courses taken on an approved programs may return to your UConn transcript with UConn course numbers, UConn credits, and UConn grades. All grades are factored into your GPA. Students cannot choose which courses they would like to appear on their UConn transcripts and which they do not want to appear.

Courses taken as a part of an Education Abroad program fall into two categories:

  • Pre-approved courses include those attached to all UConn faculty-led Education Abroad courses as well as specific courses in other programs that have been assigned equivalent UConn course numbers and credits. Pre-approved courses do not require further approval. Once transcripts are received from the host institution, courses and grades will be recorded on a student’s UConn transcript.
  • Courses that have not been pre-approved must go through the course alignment process to be assigned equivalent UConn course numbers and credits. This alignment process must be completed by the end of the semester after a student returns from studying abroad. Once the alignment process is completed and transcripts are received from the host institution, courses and grades will be recorded on a student’s UConn transcript.

If you know for sure you want to go in a particular term in your junior/senior years, your major may impact what courses you should take. Please use this tool to help you find a place that meets both needs. Don't forget to see an advisor to explore any specific impacts on your major.

Please note: Students must have all pre-requisites complete before studying abroad in order to earn UConn credit for Business courses taken abroad upon their return. Check the University Catalog for course pre-requisites.

Program listings for MEM and OPIM course offerings are coming soon.

 

The Education Abroad programs listed below offer some of the standard Business Core courses, such as: ACCT 2001, ACCT 2101, BLAW 3175, FNCE 3101, MGMT 3101, MKTG 3101, OPIM 3103, and OPIM 3104.  Please visit the associated education abroad program pages (link to each below) to see which courses are actually offered at each institution. These programs would be a great choice for a 5th term Business student (first term of their Junior year) so that they may have the most flexibility with which to choose Business courses for their schedule at the abroad institution.  For most programs, it may not be until the student arrives at the abroad location before schedules are finalized, so it's best to go in the first term the student plans on taking business courses to to maximize flexibility.
