Flights booked, bags packed, passport in hand, cameras and course materials are ready! Follow UNC's Kenneth W. Monfort College of Business students as they share their European education and experiences this summer.

Students in BA 460 International Business and Culture class will spend five weeks in Europe, three of the weeks visiting cities related to course work and two visiting cities selected by the students. Together they will be traveling to:

  • Stuttgart, Germany
  • Prague, Czech Republic
  • Vienna, Austria
  • Ljubljana, Slovenia
  • Bologna, Italy
  • Venice, Italy
  • Florence, Italy
  • Milan, Italy

Open to junior or above, the course is designed to provide students an in-depth understanding of the cultural values and norms abroad and how they translate into various business practices. While traveling, students maintain blogs that business alumni and family can follow from home. 

Destination 2017: A European Education

Departing Denver in May, Mikayla Culwell posted photos from the flight over Canada before stopping first in Stuttgart, Germany then heading on to Prague, Czech Republic to meet the rest of the class:

In Prague the class visited advertising agency Leo Burnett. After the agency, Sam Causton shared the experience of touring Kozel Brewery, where students earned a diploma in beer pouring excellence.

While in Prague, the class visted Cervo Institute, where Michaela Nelson and Courtney Hall noted the lesson on the country's economic, social and political history.

From Prague, the class traveled on to Vienna, Austria. Madison Marrs captured photos of cultural sites and shared the students' busy meeting schedule, visiting Ketchum PR firm, Deloitte, Schonbrunn Palace, and Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien.

Following Austria, students including junior marketing major Haley Sternberg, traveled to Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Pick up the international trail of these traveling Bears when you visit the Monfort College of Business Facebook page throughout May and June.
