Summer Study Abroad


James Reardon has compiled a list of Summer study abroad opportunities for marketing students and would like to add to the list with suggestions from ELMAR subscribers

 ARC: Connections: ELMAR: Posting  

I am compiling a list of direct summer study abroad opportunities and thought that I would share the good ones that I found. If you know of any other good summer programs, please post or send to me at As far as I know, all the programs below are taught by AQ type faculty. All programs below are open application to all students (not restricted to partner institutions). Some are our partner schools, some I teach in, and some I’ve just heard good things about from other faculty – I’ve only included those that I would recommend to our students. Obviously, share these with your students and any others that you would recommend with the rest of us J

NOTES: costs below do not include transportation. US credits calculated using standard 1:2 ration of US:ECTS credits. I did not put third party organized programs (IMO they tend to be very expensive for the value they give). The "*" at the end of each is my judgement 🙂
