        School of Accountancy Summer Study Abroad Program

        The School of Accountancy Summer Study Abroad Program offers an opportunity to study in Europe while completing up to five classes that satisfy accounting major/minor degree requirements and allows you to obtain a unique international experience that will differentiate you from your peers, strengthen your resume, and enhance future professional opportunities.

        During the first half of the summer, you will spend five weeks abroad (four weeks of class, one week of summer break). You will take two classes and have time to explore two European destinations (roughly two weeks in each destination). During the second half of the summer, you will have the option to take additional courses in an online/asynchronous format. This will allow you to complete the required coursework while also giving you time to explore the cities in which the program takes place and travel to other destinations.

        The inaugural program took place in Madrid, Spain and Rome, Italy and we anticipate continuing the program in these or similar locations. Both capitals are popular European destinations, with vibrant cultures, great food and a variety of entertainment options.
