Program Design

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, Nutrition Science, 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. 27, 2014- Jan. 17, 2015

 

 

Living

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.
