Propose a Program
Short-Term Study Programs present a fantastic way to enhance the academic experience for both students and faculty.
While traveling abroad or domestically together, groups can find new layers of knowledge and culture that they can then bring back and share with the GWSB community.
The Office of Global and Experiential Education supports faculty in developing and implementing short-term off-site study programs both overseas and domestically.
Some topics may seem like natural fit for a short-term study course, such as studying tourism development in China or financial management in New York however, the Office of Global and Experiential Education encourages faculty from across all departments to consider how to bring an international or experiential component to their courses. Past GWSB Short-Term Programs have included “Information Systems, Technology & Growth” in Israel, “Public-Private Partnerships” in London and “Advertising & Marketing Consulting Practicum” in Boston with the Cranberry Marketing Committee for U.S. Cranberries and many more programs around the world.
For faculty members interested in creating courses with an off-campus component for graduate students, the Office for Global and Experiential Education provides administrative support, guidance, and funding. Please review the menu options on the left side which will provide more detail on how to create and propose a short-term program. In addition, an info session for faculty interested in proposing a course is typically held each year in September.
