Semester Abroad for Economics Majors


Purdue University CampusIn an increasingly global society, an international component has become an essential part of higher education. A semester study abroad is an experience that gives students greater understanding of themselves, their society and culture, and the world. Through a firsthand experience of another culture, you can enrich your academic disciplines with comparative perspectives while broadening your personal horizons. You can also build lifetime friendships with classmates who share your semester abroad.

We strongly encourage all students pursuing an Economics major (BA or BS), as well as students pursuing joint majors such as Economics and Management, to experience a semester abroad.

The Daniels School of Business prepares global business leaders with analytical insight and cultural intelligence. Study abroad is an integral part of that preparation, teaching adaptability, personal responsibility and strategic thinking skills.
