There are many options all over the world for Business majors and minors to study abroad. Studying abroad contributes to gaining the cultural experience needed to succeed in the global economy. As a student studying abroad your primary purpose should be learning the culture and business practices of your given country. This will enhance your knowledge of the world and ensure your success in the field of business.

This page contains information that will assist Business majors and minors determining how to integrate study abroad into their Brandeis careers. Generally, students who study abroad for one semester have little difficulty completing the Business major or minor. Those who choose to study abroad for an entire year will have to work with their advisor or the Study Abroad Liaison to develop a plan that will allow them to finish the major on time, but this is possible.

Business Study Abroad Liaison

To assist students with their academic choices abroad and to help answer any questions about receiving major/ minor credit while abroad, each academic department and program has assigned a faculty member to serve as the Study Abroad Liaison. Business majors who plan to study abroad should speak with the study abroad liaison before they go abroad, and again once they have returned from study abroad.

The liaison for Business is Prof. John Ballantine.

Receiving Credit in Business

Students wishing to receive Business credit for work done off campus during the academic year should discuss their desired coursework with the Study Abroad Liaison for Business prior to studying abroad. After returning from abroad, download and complete the Petition to Request Substitution for a Requirement form and then request to meet with the Study Abroad Liaison.
