International Summer Program in Management

Study business where Copernicus and Galileo lectured, the University of Padua. Drive a Vespa among 16th-century buildings and celebrate a legacy of the spirited life. Collaborate with European students who want to learn about you as much as you want to learn about them. This is a European Travel experience like no other; itís the International Summer Program in Management (ISPM). 

The program will begin by preparing you to travel with a group of your classmates from the University of Michigan-Dearborn. Then, you will leave the States in time to be in Padua on May 4, 2015 for orientation. Classes begin the next day and end June 18th. For the 6 weeks of your stay in Italy, you will room with your UM-Dearborn classmates and take classes 3-days per week with both US and European students. The rest of the timeÖ well, itís up to you.
