Learning Beyond the Classroom with Semester, Summer, or Short-term Study Abroad Opportunities!
The UNC Asheville Department of Management and Accountancy is committed to helping students explore their potential through experiential education opportunities. Studying abroad as a management major is one way students can expand their experiences and develop an understanding of the world and their place as a global citizen. Furthermore, by participating in a study abroad program, management majors can give themselves a competitive edge in the job market. Employers today seek out individuals who have had the type of experience study abroad provides.
Management Major Requirements
As part of the curriculum requirements for graduation, UNC Asheville management majors must fulfill either an internship, an undergraduate research project, or a study abroad program. To fulfill the requirement via study abroad, students will complete at least 3 management/business focused credit hours abroad in an approved study abroad program.
When to Study Abroad?
While it is up to the student to decide which time is best for their study abroad experience, students in the management major tend to have the most flexibility during their sophomore or junior year. A student cannot participate in a semester-long study abroad in their last semester at UNC Asheville.
I only speak English. Is this a problem?
No. The majority of management and business focused study abroad programs offer coursework in English. View programs with management courses offered in English.
Can I afford to study abroad?
Most of the semester study abroad programs offered by UNC Asheville have the same tuition as studying on the UNC Asheville campus (exchange based programs). Please visit the Study Abroad Office website for more information about tuition, financial aid, and scholarships. Please visit the Study Abroad website for more information.
Students should plan to meet with the Management Department Study Abroad Coordinator, Dr. Deena Burris (firstname.lastname@example.org), where students will discuss optimal courses to take on their study abroad program and how those credits could transfer back to UNCA.
