These seminar travel courses take students outside the geographic borders of the U.S. (in this case Curacao and Bonaire) and provide learning experiences beyond the classroom environment. The course involves research and discussion of environmental and Corporate Social Responsibility issues relevant to the country being visited, and programs and activities that enhance the ability of students to comprehend, analyze, and grasp different aspects of sustainability that are the responsibility of organizations in the global environment.

BUS 315: International Practicum (3 credits)

International Practicum involves pre-travel study and travel of 10-14 days duration during school breaks that are chaperoned and supervised by a business faculty member. These trips take students outside the geographic borders of the U.S. and provide learning experiences beyond the classroom environment. Programs and activities enhance the ability of students to comprehend, analyze, and grasp different cultural aspects that impact successful management of organizations in the global work environment. The major goal of the International Practicum is to allow undergraduate students opportunities to enhance their understanding of cross-cultural differences and the globalization of the work environment.
