Business is Global

The best way to learn is through experience and the best time to have an international experience is now!

The Ivy College of Business International Programs Office is here to help you explore the world while taking courses that will count toward the completion of your business degree. We will help you select a study abroad program that fits your schedule, your budget, and your sense of adventure. We have partnered with excellent institutions around the world that offer business classes in English for your semester or summer abroad. Or, you can take an international study course and learn while you travel with your classmates and professor during a semester break.

One of the best ways to “Enjoy Your Adventure” here at Iowa State is to go have an adventure abroad! Contact us at to get your journey started.

Study Abroad for a Semester, Year,
or Summer

Take classes (in English) for a semester, year, or summer term on the campus of one of our partner institutions. Start your search on ISUAbroad and make an appointment with our International Program coordinator to get the process started.

International Study Courses During a
Semester Break

International study courses give you an option of earning ISU credit while learning abroad in the company of your classmates and a College of Business faculty member over a semester break. Many of these faculty-led courses involve live case studies and company visits with major international businesses. As an added bonus, Ivy College of Business students going on an Ivy College of Business faculty-led program automatically receive a scholarship!

Exchange Abroad

For in-state students, exchange programs offer the option to study abroad with one of our partner universities while continuing to pay ISU tuition and fees. If you are an out-of-state student, you may not be eligible for exchanges, but don’t worry! Most programs will cost the same as your out of state tuition.

Intern Abroad

If you are interested in working while you explore a new country, an international internship is the way to go. Start by making an appointment to speak with your Career Coordinator about the options. You can also search for international internships on ISUAbroad.

“Studying abroad has been a dream experience. I have learned more about life in a few months through conversations with locals and observations while traveling than I have in my entire time as an undergraduate. Being overseas for a semester and taking classes at a different school has given me a well-rounded college experience and an upper-hand moving to the next stages of life because of the lessons I’ve learned in international business, personal finances, politics, different cultures, history, and art. Every student in the College of Business should take advantage of the opportunities available to study abroad – whether it’s for a week over spring break or for an entire year, it’s an experience worth pursuing.”
