The Walker College of Business encourages its students to participate in one or more of its travel abroad opportunities. These programs have proven to be invaluable experiences for many students, some of whom have found employment overseas. Some of the trips are scheduled during Fall and Spring breaks. Many are affordable, with scholarships available. Student do not have to speak a second language. And they can earn credit towards their degree!

If you want more information on future opportunities, please contact Meredith Church Pipes, International Programs Coordinator for COB International Programs.
