Going Global

The University of Kansas School of Business is tucked in the heart of the Midwest, but for students, it’s a first-class ticket to anywhere. There are study abroad programs available on nearly every continent including Australia, China, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Spain, Turkey and the UK – just to name a few.

We encourage students going beyond the classroom for an unmatchable learning experience. With dedicated scholarships available for international programs, the School enables many Business students to study abroad for varying lengths at various times of the year. Our focus on the importance of international experience and global business activity distinguishes us as a leading school in international business.

KU offers international programs for students to decide what best fits their time preference and career aspirations: short-term study trips usually last two weeks, while longer-term opportunities extend anywhere from a summer to a year.

We believe international experience is key to preparing students for leadership positions in the global marketplace.
