General Description

 

Study Abroad in Paris is designed primarily for CBA students who wish to study for a semester in Paris, France. Students will join a group of international students from over 40 countries enrolled at the American Business School in Paris  (www.absparis.org) and will take business and liberal arts courses taught in English while simultaneously gaining French language and cultural skills. A student can earn up to 16 credit hours for a semester.  Credit will only be given for grades of “C” or higher.  To help with the transition to living in Paris, students are encouraged to enroll in a French language course before their semester abroad.

 

Goals and Objectives

 

·         Students will profit from studying abroad in several major respects.  Integration in a different cultural environment will rapidly advance the pace of personal growth and maturity.  Students will learn to live with cultural diversity, a necessary skill for any career in the modern world, especially for one concerned with international trade and business.  The challenging exposure to a foreign culture through daily contact with its people and institutions will help develop a sense of self and, ultimately, an understanding of one’s place in the world.

·         Immediate academic objectives include participation in the academic life of the American Business School, meeting students from diverse backgrounds and learning French or improving proficiency in French.

·         CBA students will be able to continue on track academically.  In addition to academic course work, students will participate in site visits to multinational organizations.
