European Business Environment: 5 Weeks in Ireland and Europe


Application deadline is November 18, 2015

Program dates:   May 21 to June 30, 2016

The 2016 Summer in Ireland and Europe program will be based out of University College (UCD) in Dublin, Ireland.  You will stay in individual UCD dorm rooms, and share a common kitchen and living room with other NDSU students.  During this program, you will complete six credit hours (MRKT 440/640, Int'l Marketing, and BUSN 231/793, the European Business Environment) while learning about business in the European Union.

Prerequisites:   Business majors and minors:  MRKT 320, Foundations of Marketing, and minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA;   Non-business students:  Junior standing, and minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA.   

As part of this experience, you will take field trips to Northern Ireland, Greece, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, and to cities and towns throughout Ireland. You will visit businesses such as a chocolate factory, the Guinness Storehouse and the Waterford Crystal factory in Ireland, and the Mercedes-Benz factory in Stuttgart, Germany.  You will visit the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France and visit other cultural and historic sites in the many countries we visit.


After World War II, the European Union was created to prevent another world war, by linking together the various European nations through trade agreements. 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. For example, we will visit the D-Day beaches in Normandy, France, and the American cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer.
