Benefits of COB  Programs

Exchange - Study Abroad - faculty led

  • Courses taught in English
  • Gain cultural awareness
  • Personal growth
  • Financial Aid and Scholarships may apply
  • Develop skills employers appreciate
  • Complete courses that will count towards OSU degree
  • Mandatory pre-departure course to help students prepare

Exchange: OSU students "switch places" with students from international institutions.  Placement in these programs often depends on how many students the other institution will be able to send to OSU. Students going on exchange programs will pay tuition to OSU for their time abroad.

Study Abroad:  There is no exchange of students between schools.  Students typically pay tuition to the host institution or a third party provider.

Faculty Led:  OSU faculty teach a course abroad.  Students pay OSU tuition.  How course applies to individual degree program varies depending on subject.

OSU GO Opportunities - Non COB exchanges or study abroad programs.  Must work with OSU Office of Global Opportunities (GO) to enroll.  Courses are not guaranteed to transfer into COB degree program.

Faculty Led - Occasionally, COB faculty will teach a course at an overseas location.  Check with Advising Office to learn of any upcoming offerings.



In the 1980s, under the leadership of Professor Arthur Stonehill, the first two College of Business exchange programs were established with the University of Technology in Australia and Aarhus University in Denmark.  Over the decades, the COB programs have grown to include 16 partner institutions around the globe that offer international academic experiences for business and design majors.  We share a commitment with faculty at our partner schools to build a community that supports the academic and personal needs of our respective visiting students.  The Get Going program recognizes Stonehill for setting the cornerstone of excellence that we uphold and for his continued support over the years of these successful overseas study options.
