Study Abroad in Germany

International Economics in Germany

Program Overview

The Economics and International Business study abroad to Germany will provide students with valuable first-hand experience of German business, culture, and policies of social market economics. In addition to classroom instruction and guest speakers from academia and business, we will take an in-depth tour of the European Central Bank and visit German cultural and historical sites. There will also be networking opportunities with business students from the Aachen University's AACSB accredited business program.
