Cuernavaca is the capital and largest city of the state of Morelos. Although home to more than 400,000 people, Cuernavaca exudes a small-town feel. Appreciated for history, striking scenery, vibrant life, and an eternally spring climate, Cuernavaca is an ideal place to learn.
This unique program is structured to provide you with a rich introduction to Mexico, its culture, language and people. Separate tracks have also been created for you to study Education, Business, Social Work, or Nursing and Healthcare topics in depth. Mornings will be filled with small group Spanish Language instruction (all levels), while afternoons will filled with excursions and lectures specific to your interest.
Business Track – It's more important than ever for Business Administration and Accounting students to study abroad. One of the most important cultures for Business Administration and Accounting students to understand is that of Mexico. Why? Well, Mexico is our third largest trading partner, after Canada and China. Individuals who have first-hand knowledge of Mexico's culture, business, and language have a competitive advantage over those who do not share this knowledge.
You will learn about Mexico's culture, business, and language through visits to various business enterprises, guest speakers, and day-long excursions. Three credits of Bus Adm 499 will be awarded upon successful completion of this course. Bus Adm 499 fulfills the World Culture Gen. Ed. Requirement. Bus Adm 499 may also be used to satisfy an upper-level management or marketing course requirement in Business Administration or Accounting. See your advisor for details.
Program Dates: Dec. 27th, 2018- Jan. 16th, 2019
Participants will be placed with a host family. Meals are provided by the host family and are included in the housing fees. Homestay living provides students the opportunity to enhance conversational language skills while experiencing Mexican family life.
As this is an immersion experience, the English language skills of host families will vary. We will do our best to place students with no
Spanish skills in a home where the host has some English skills. Students will be transported to and from school by their host families. Students are only responsible for transportation costs (ex. taxi fare) to and from excursion meeting points and personal exploration.
