Other programs that may be of interest to business students

Semester programs:
MSU offers a number of low-cost semester exchange programs around the world.  Students can take classes in English in the business fields, work on their foreign language proficiency, or get some of their University Studies credits taken care of.  Semester-long programs are available at quality, accredited universities in Chile, China, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Spain, and South Korea.
Many more semester-length options are available through trusted study abroad providers.  Speak to an Education Abroad Advisor to help identify the best program for you.

Short-term programs:
Business courses are offered on programs ranging from 1 week Spring Break all the way to a full semester or year.  Shorter programs allow you to "test the waters" and give you more options for how to fit study abroad into a busy schedule.  You still receive academic credit on these programs, and there are a variety of courses, lengths of programs and locations to choose from.

Internships abroad:
Especially popular for students majoring in the Arthur J. Bauernfeind College of Business are international internship opportunities.  This is a growing field that many MSU students have already taken advantage of and international internships are a great way to get on-the-job experience and network.
