July 16, 2014


Business Research Guide, a website dedicated to technologies, products and services, and career and education options, has ranked the Freeman School No. 5 in the nation on its list of 30 Great U.S. Colleges for Studying Business Abroad.

With over 10 affiliate universities worldwide, students may choose to attend programs at the Leipzig School of Management, the University of Innsbruck in Austria, or Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Through a joint venture with the National Taiwan University and schools in Mexico and Europe, Executive MBA students may travel abroad to study global business practices, history, and culture. Graduate students may pursue internships during the summer at multinational corporations in Asia, Latin America, and Europe.

The ranking was based on commitment to excellence in international business education, variety of study abroad options for full and part-time students, and focus on global exchange with educational institutions across the globe.

The Freeman School began offering study abroad options for students in 1988. Since then, study abroad has become a major component of the Freeman School’s international program, which encompasses student and faculty exchanges, study abroad opportunities, initiatives like Burkenroad Reports for Latin America and the Latin American Research Consortium, and joint venture degree programs with 35 partner institutions in 20 countries.
