Your Expatriate Year Our program augments academic knowledge of international business practices with deep cultural immersion in one of 10 countries. During your expatriate year, you'll complete coursework and your co-op in the host country's language. This immersive and life-changing experience leads to truly rewarding social, cultural, and business connections.
The intent of the BSIB program is to expose students to a culture with which they are not yet familiar; that's why international students are encouraged to choose a destination other than their home country. For those who choose to study in China/Hong Kong or Japan, English will be the language of instruction and the dual degree option is not available.
