Explore Study Abroad Opportunities

Employers increasingly seek out individuals who have had international experience, and international exposure on a resumé can help a student stand out among the competition.

The School of Business International Program helps students prepare for successful careers by providing them with international educational opportunities through student and faculty exchanges, study abroad, travel study courses, and service learning experiences in England, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy and China, to name a few. Having the opportunity to live and study in another culture brings the concept of working in a global economy to a very personal level.

“We live in a global market. It is essential for employees to have an understanding of other cultures.”
Dion Joannou, BS ’89

A former international student himself, Joannou chose to leave South Africa and study abroad at the SIUE School of Business, which launched a career that would take him to four different continents. Today, Joannou is an experienced business executive who is serving on several corporate boards.

“I had the opportunity to study abroad in Germany, China and Budapest. You realize just how big the world really is.”
Jared Fischer, BS ’07, senior internal auditor, Graybar, St. Louis
