Business is global, and a global perspective is required for success in today's economy. That's why the College of Business partners with several universities around the world to enhance the international experience of students and faculty.
Study business at the University of Padua, Italy where Copernicus and Galileo lectured. Celebrate the “spirited” life by driving a Vespa scooter down a cobblestone street among 16th-century buildings. Since 2003, University of Michigan-Dearborn students have taken business courses at the University of Padua. Students work together on projects with students from Italy and all over the world. Our goal is to broaden your horizons, literally and figuratively, giving you a competitive edge in thinking about business with the influence of other cultures.
The program will begin by preparing you to travel with a group of your classmates from the University of Michigan-Dearborn. You’ll take three to four 1-hour classes between February and May to get you ready for the experience. Then, you will leave the States in time to be in Padua on May 9, 2017 for orientation. Classes begin the next day and end June 15th. 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 time… well, it’s up to you.
