Summer in the European Union


Early application deadline is mid-November 
Final deadline is mid-February

Travel dates:   6 weeks in May and June each year

Spend six weeks in Europe and earn six hours (MRKT 440/640 - International Marketing, and BUSN 341/793, The European Business Environment) while learning about the European Union (EU).  You will study International Marketing in a European context and visit institutions of the EU, and other cultural, historical, and business sites.  

Prerequisites:   Business majors and minors - MRKT 320, Foundations of Marketing;   Non-business majors -  Junior standing.   

As part of the experience, you will take field trips to Belgium, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Luxembourg, Italy, Monaco, France, Germany, and Switzerland.  

You will visit businesses such as a Belgian chocolate factory, the Antwerp diamond district, and the Guinness brewery in Dublin, Ireland;  governmental institutions such as the European Parliament in Brussels and Strasbourg, France;  and cultural and historic sites throughout the seven countries we visit.



The European Union (EU) was created to prevent another World War from happening, by linking trade between the various European nations.  For some of our cultural trips, we will explore various World War II sites, since that war was so instrumental in the creation of the EU.  We will visit the D-Day Beaches of Normandy, France; the Battle of the Bulge in Belgium;  the American Cemetery in Luxembourg; and other WWII sites.

NOTE:   This study abroad summer opportunity will be limited to 30 students.  If more than 30 students apply, those who applied by the deadline have first priority.
