Study Abroad

Studying abroad enables students to diversify their educational experience and become more marketable in a global economy. For business students the best opportunities to study abroad exist during the sophomore and junior years while completing the general education core, business core, or any free electives. There are several types of study abroad programs available to students such as Faculty-Led, International Exchange, Affiliated, and Non-Affiliated.

For more information on all opportunities and the process of gaining approval to study abroad, please consult with the Education Abroad Office and attend a General Information Session.

It is imperative that business students consult with their advisor early on in their time at Texas State if they are interested in study abroad.
