Study Abroad


Welcome to the Gies College of Business Study Abroad programs

The Gies College of Business is committed to preparing students to work and compete in an international business environment. By participating in a study abroad program you can give yourself a competitive edge in the job market. Employers now seek out individuals who have had international experience. As more and more opportunities are being offered by the Gies College of Business and the campus, there is little excuse for graduates in today’s job market to lack exposure to the international business environment. Developing an understanding of the world beyond the boundaries of the United States is an advantage to anyone in a business career, which is why the Gies College of Business has a goal of having 100% study abroad participation.

Did you know that for most of the Gies College of Business semester programs, you would pay less than $2,000 tuition instead of the regular full price of tuition? Studying in another country might be cheaper than you realized. If you normally pay out-of-state tuition, there are definitely options through the Gies College of Business that will be cheaper than a semester at Illinois.

There are many opportunities for Gies College of Business students to study abroad. Students have the option of studying abroad for a few weeks, a summer or an entire semester. In addition to programs sponsored by the Gies College of Business, the University of Illinois has hundreds of study abroad options to choose from.

Make an appointment with Nicole Lamers, PhD or Dan Anderson in 320 Wohlers to learn what study abroad option would be best for you.
