Six countries in Europe and one country in North Africa will be “the world as our campus” for five weeks in June 2022. This significant learning experience abroad is designed for undergraduate students interested in getting a leg up in their global careers. We will be learning how individuals can be more inclusive and innovative in a globally diverse world. You will receive “on-the-ground” experience in European business, government, and culture, as we meet with companies, visit castles, and eat in cafés of Europe, spanning the Netherlands to Morocco. We will also enjoy the spectacular natural beauty of these countries, such as canals in Amsterdam, mediaeval towns in Belgium, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Lake Geneva in Switzerland, La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, the sunsets of Portugal, and flea markets of Morocco.
