Welcome to the College of Business Study Abroad programs
The College of Business is committed to preparing students to work and compete in an international business environment. By participating in a study abroad program you can give yourself a competitive edge in the job market. Employers now seek out individuals who have had international experience. As more and more opportunities are being offered by the College of Business and the campus, there is little excuse for graduates in today's job market to lack exposure to the international business environment. Developing an understanding of the world beyond the boundaries of the United States is an advantage to anyone in a business career, which is why the College of Business has a goal of having 100% study abroad participation.
Did you know that for most of the College of Business semester programs, you would pay Range IV tuition instead of the regular full price of tuition? Studying in another country might be cheaper than you realized. If you normally pay out-of-state tuition, there are definitely options through the College of Business that will be cheaper than a semester at UIUC.
There are many opportunities for College of Business students to study abroad. Students have the option of studying abroad for a few weeks, a summer, a semester, or the entire academic year. In addition to programs sponsored by the College of Business, the University of Illinois has hundreds off study abroad options to choose from.
