Get Real World Global Management Skills by Studying Abroad
A business degree is a valuable commodity in all manner of business environments–public or private, for-profit or nonprofit, large or small. Florida Tech's business administration degree program is designed to give students more than just classroom learning; it provides resume- building experiences, insight into industries of interest through projects and internships, and business networking opportunities.
Students develop real world global management skills through culturally rich study abroad programs. During the summers of their junior year, students study in Europe and Asia while taking courses relevant to their degree. Some of these study abroad locations include:
- Oxford, England
- Rome, Florence and Venice, Italy
- The Netherlands
- Taichung, Taiwan
As our students study in Europe and Asia, they visit corporations to see how multinational companies deal with a global economy.
Take Part in the Business Research Course
If students choose to study abroad over summer in Europe or Asia, they return ready to put their global management skills to work in the Business Plan Research Course. This critical thinking-focused course challenges students to develop a business plan for a real or hypothetical opportunity. Students take the business plan from a concept to a full-fledged program.
Post-Graduation Business Practicum Jump Starts Employment
Students can choose to study in Europe as part of a business practicum the summer after their senior year. This practicum gives students a way to immediately apply their global management skills in the workplace. Business practicums also serve as an opportunity to forge networks outside the U.S. for potential careers in the field of international business.
Make Contacts in a Club or Organization
Professional organizations are the perfect way for students to develop global management skills. The business honor society Delta Mu Delta helps students make connections nationally and internationally as they prepare to enter a global job market. Delta Mu Delta also helps develop academic excellence in business students.
The Florida Tech Entrepreneur Club also allows students to meet with local entrepreneurs to learn more about business first hand and exchange creative ideas.
