Study Abroad Opportunities (Optional)

Hough Graduate School of Business Foreign Study Opportunities

The ability to study for a term (or shorter) at a top foreign school is one of the greatest features of the MIB Program. Students are able to get a different "international" perspective from their professors and peers. The total immersion experience of a foreign environment allows students to develop independence, cultural awareness and sensitivity, and problem-solving skills, which are highly-valued traits by potential employers. Finally, successfully navigating new surroundings is personally rewarding and fun!

After completion of the core course on the UF campus, students are free to earn MIB credit through a foreign study program. Study abroad trips can be as short as two weeks or as long as eight months. Most programs offer courses taught in English, however, individuals demonstrating foreign language proficiency may take courses in other languages. The modular design of the MIB Program facilitates short-term study abroad possibilities, since UF classes last only half the length of a regular semester.

The typical study abroad terms, based on MIB Program start date appear below.

MIB Start Date Typical Foreign Study Terms
Spring Summer and/or Fall
Summer B Spring and/or Summer

Students who study abroad can select any courses they wish, provided that they are graduate business (or related, i.e., law, political environment) courses. This gives individuals the freedom to tailor the program to a specific area of their interest, such as finance or e-commerce. Students also have the option of taking courses at two different exchange sites. Students can also participate in a study abroad at a non-partner school if they receive prior approval from the MIB program. Learn more about Hough Foreign Study Opportunities.
