Program Description:

Terry Biz in Europe

Study abroad for business majors, since 1970.
 

Business in Europe

The "Business in Europe" program allows students to explore three cities in Central & Eastern Europe through a faculty-led study abroad (4 weeks). Students will learn about the opportunities and challenges of doing business in/with the EU and Euro Zone. We will discuss and analyze current issues in a 10-day seminar with local students of the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU). We will experience the unique cultures, cuisines, and landscapes of these historic cities through expert-guided tours and activities. Orientation sessions for this program will be held during the Spring semester preceding the program.
 

Program Locations

The 2019 itinerary includes travel to Prague, Budapest, and Vienna. Central & Eastern Europe is an attractive destination for business students for many reasons. It is here where world powers of the 20th century have both collided and cooperated, where democracy faced-down fascism, where the drama of sovereignty and economy continues to play-out.  All three countries are members of the European Union--with people, goods and services flowing fairly freely across borders--but, the Czech Republic and Hungary hedge their bets by delaying membership in the Euro Zone (i.e., we will operate on 3 different currencies during the trip!). Each place is distinct in language and culture, providing the perfect backdrop to explore the regions comparisons and contrasts, and what it means for business enterprise in the 21st century.

 

Academic Program

Faculty instructor will be Dr. Son Lam, Department of Marketing. Professor Lam has experience teaching abroad in the UGA-GLOBIS study abroad program in Verona, Italy.

Students will enroll in both of the following courses for credit. These courses satisfy upper-division general electives for business majors, and may satisfy additional requirements for Marketing and/or IB majors. The academic program also fulfills UGA's experiential learning requirement. 

INTB 5100 - Special topics in international business (3 credits)
MARK 5000 - Special topics in marketing (3 credits) 

Prerequisite: None. Permission of department given upon admission.

Program Reviews:
Maymester 2018 Participant
This trip is by far the coolest part of my UGA experience!!! Best three and a half weeks of my life!

Maymester 2017 Participant
Anyone and everyone should take the opportunity to go abroad if they can... it was the experience of a lifetime. It's the best way to really get to know a place and its culture.

Maymester 2018 Participant
The knowledge I've gained from this trip is invaluable! Taking classes on different cultures and countries doesn't compare to experiencing those cultures first-hand and interacting with locals face-to-face. This study abroad has been the highlight of my time at UGA!

Please do this program! I never would have gone to this part of Europe if it weren't for Terry Study Abroad. Eastern Europe has such unique amazing things to experience, and it would be a shame to neglect these opportunities.
