European, Asian Business Seminar Available for Students
BATON ROUGE – An information session has been scheduled for students wishing to participate in study abroad trips to Europe and China. This information session will be held Thursday, Oct. 6, in 3141 Patrick F. Taylor Hall, beginning at 4:30 p.m.
According to Department of Marketing Associate Professor Judith Anne Garretson Folse, the International Business Seminars is a study-abroad program with a business focus.
“Through this program, students have opportunities to travel around Europe or China and visit businesses and experience different cultures,” Folse said. “(Assistant Professor) Dan Rice and I are assisting with the organization of the tours at LSU. The tours take place during our summer and winter breaks, and the student to faculty ratio is 12 to one during the seminars.”
Aside from the life experience gained and learning about business environments in different countries, students who participate will earn three hours of credit for Marketing 4477. Students may also participate in trips for no academic credit.
“Marketing 4477 is a pass/fail class,” Folse said. “When students return, they will have 60 days to write a 20-page paper regarding their experiences. The paper is only required for those who want to earn course credit.”
In addition to the information session, Folse invites students to ask questions by visiting either her or Rice. Additionally, information regarding pricing, destinations that will be visited and companies that will be visited can be found at www.ibstours.com.
