Summer 2015 in Ireland & Europe


Application deadline is November 14, 2014

Program dates:   May 19 to June 30, 2015

Spend part of your summer in Europe and earn six hours (MRKT 440/640 - International Marketing, and BUSN 341, 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.   

The program will be based at University College in Dublin, Ireland. As part of the experience, you will take field trips to Northern Ireland, Greece, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg 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, the Mercedes-Benz factory in Stuttgart, Germany, and a winery in Trier, 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, the American cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, and the American Cemetery in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg.
