The Goldring Institute’s study abroad programs enable students to live and study in another culture. These programs are offered for a semester or summer study abroad. The purpose of these programs is to develop students’ international management skills by focusing on cultural understanding and global strategies that create competitive advantages in international business. All courses are taught in English and/or the language of the host country by Freeman-affiliated international faculty. At the host institutions abroad, students study in a campus environment. The Freeman School also hosts visiting students from affiliated universities around the world through the corresponding exchange and dual degree programs.

We expect that through immersion in another culture students will reflect critically on the world and on themselves, and that as a result of study abroad students will:

  • become more mature and self-reliant;
  • become more mindful of their cultural identities;
  • identify specific attitudes and skills that are necessary to navigate cross-cultural situations;
  • become more willing to take risks and think creatively;
  • acquire important business and interpersonal skills that will help future academic and career aspirations;
  • develop a greater appreciation and respect for cultures and societies unlike their own;
  • feel new levels of empowerment/leadership in pursuing future goals; and
  • develop new ways of seeing themselves, their home country, and the rest of the world.
