Study Abroad and Exchange Programs
The Goldring Institute offers students in the A.B. Freeman School of Business the opportunity to spend one or two semesters at one of our 40 partner institutions with Business Schools in over 20 countries. Participants are directly enrolled at the partner institution, therefore they experience campus life in the host country. Courses are most often taught in English by Freeman-affiliated international faculty, and include both local and international students. If students are proficient in the host country language, they can also take courses in that language of instruction. Freeman programs are a good fit for independent and self-motivated students. They offer a broad range of academic offerings, cultural immersion, and freedom to engage in extracurricular activities at one's host university. These programs are governed by the BSM and MBA Curriculum Committees and are managed by the staff of the Goldring Institute.
It is important for each student to decide which program is best for them, so they are encouraged to consider the following criteria when selecting a program: academics, personal goals, professional goals, language(s) of instruction, level of immersion, host university environment and support services, rankings and academic rigor, safety and security, housing preferences, financial considerations, academic calendars, and program reviews. Of course, Goldring Institute staff members are available for student advising appointments in order to help assist students through this process.
