Study Abroad

It’s an adventure, a personal challenge, a new culture, language and environment. You also fulfill academic goals while studying abroad.

Oh, the places you'll go!

Study Abroad

There’s a reason you can't stop talking about your study abroad experience after you've done it — a new culture, perhaps a new language, and relying on yourself to conquer a new environment. Spending time abroad also fulfills academic goals, and costs may be similar to your current term costs. We have 16 partner institutions around the globe that offer international academic experiences for our business and design majors.

Some of our opportunities are exchange programs (tuition is paid to OSU), while others are study-abroad programs (tuition may be paid to the host institution or a third party). Either way, you'll experience personal growth while learning about international business or design from faculty around the world.

Arthur Stonehill International Business Exchange

The first two College of Business exchange programs were established in the 1980s with the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia, and the Aarhus School of Business in Denmark. Our exchange program is named in recognition of Emeritus Professor Arthur Stonehill, who founded the program and continued over the years to support its success.

Design-focused study abroad

If you are part of our apparel design, design and innovation management, interior design or merchandising management programs, we have a variety of study abroad or exchange program options specialized to these degrees. Employers in fields related to design value the skills and perspectives gained by students who study abroad or do an exchange program.

OSU GO (Office of Global Opportunities) is not a College of Business-supported program. However, you may be able to earn OSU Bacc Core, minor or elective credits. Meet with your academic advisor to review how courses may or may not transfer into your degree program if you attend a school that is not part of the College of Business study abroad options.
