European Study Tour

The European Study Tour is a linchpin of the European internship/study abroad programs and serves as a comprehensive introduction to the European Union and European markets.

Teams of two students are assigned an important business topic and an EU capital. You and your partner travel to the country, conduct interviews with government officials and business experts, and complete as much on-the-ground research as possible. Topic examples have included EU enlargement and the Euro financial crisis.

During part two of the study tour, you and your fellow participants gather in Brussels to attend lectures and meetings with European Parliament members and to debate your findings with fellow study abroad students at a mock parliament.
