Taking Learning Abroad

Northwood University’s study abroad programs offer students opportunities to see and practice the Northwood Idea at a global scale and through a global perspective. A few weeks ago, a group of students departed for a semester-long study abroad in Europe. During their short time abroad, these students have already had the opportunity to visit countries such as England, Portugal, France, Spain and Switzerland and they are now on their way to Florence, Italy. 

Tuning into Northwood’s Snapchat this weekend will provide a glimpse of our students abroad as they take over the account Saturday and Sunday. I look forward to hearing from them when they return about the countries they enjoyed the most, and how much this experience adds to their global perspectives on business.

Northwood offers a wide variety of short-term and long-term programs for students to travel to countries all over the world to experience other cultures, meet new people and enhance their resume, all while earning credit. Northwood has programs in the coming months planned for countries such as Austria, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, China, Dominican Republic, Ireland and Sweden.

I hope our students take advantage of all the opportunities available here at Northwood to grow their personal and professional skills, whether they’re here preparing for next week’s auto show or overseas.

Have a great weekend!
