Student life

Study abroad

According to the Institute of International Education, U.S. student participation in study abroad has more than tripled over the past two decades. It’s an upswing many credit to the increasingly global, and interconnected nature of the modern business world — and it makes sense, considering the great global perspective, understanding, and flexibility students develop during even a single week of intercultural exposure. The W. P. Carey School is dedicated to giving you all the tools you need for lifelong success, which includes practical (and fun) preparation for global business careers — in countries around the world.

Ways to learn business abroad

The W. P. Carey School of Business strongly encourages every business student to study abroad. International study and internship programs cultivate characteristics that will take you far in your career and your life, including communication and interpersonal skills, flexibility, motivation, and a real-life perspective on business applications worldwide.

Considering the tremendous value of these experiences, the W. P. Carey School works hard to make studying abroad as accessible as possible for business students:

  • All W. P. Carey students can complete business major requirements at partner institutions abroad, including universities in Europe, Asia, Australia, and Latin America
  • Options to study abroad for a summer session, semester, or academic year
  • Access to specialized faculty-directed, exchange, and direct partnership programs for W. P. Carey students
  • Planning assistance from special W. P. Carey international programs advisors, including help working with the ASU Study Abroad Office
  • Opportunity to diversify your degree with the W. P. Carey certificate in international business
  • Scholarships for qualified students — ASU students earned close to $1 million in study abroad scholarships during the 2013–14 academic year
