College of Business & Economics

MAPs are being updated

These pages are currently under revision, and may not have a complete list of programs. Please contact Hannah Nevitt to explore all program options.

The following programs offer significant coursework and immersion opportunities for Business and AACSB Accredited Programs. This is meant to highlight a variety of programs by region; please note there are many more available beyond what is listed here and this is not a guaranteed list for credit transfer. Students will still need to meet with their departments to discuss fulfilling degree requirements.

Please note: The International Business program expects that the program be of sufficient length to provide a meaningful experience abroad. If the program you select is less than six weeks in length, you will need to either combine it with a second program (e.g. a one month academic program plus another short internship with international content) or combine the short period of study abroad with a year of language study at WWU to satisfy the international experience requirement in the IBUS program.
