International Field Study Courses and Trips

Classrooms Without Borders

Professionals entering today's global economy require a well-rounded business education that fuses contemporary disciplines with international applications and hands-on experience. As a result, Pace University's Lubin School of Business is committed to providing global learning opportunities for all graduate and undergraduate students.

In addition to a full slate of long-term study abroad programs, Lubin provides unique opportunities for students to gain short-term international academic experience through fully credited BBA and MBA courses. International Field Study Courses are organized by the Lubin Center for Global Business Programs in cooperation with the Departments of Accounting, Finance and Economics, Legal Studies and Taxation, Management, and Marketing. Students attend classes, interact with professors, tour company facilities, meet with governmental leaders and participate in roundtable workshops conducted by globally recognized academics—all in an informal educational setting.

Most International Field Study Courses are scheduled during spring break, winter break, or during summer months. Courses include pre-trip classroom instruction, followed by 10-14 days of on-site workshops led by full-time Lubin faculty. Students earn full academic credit for all International Field Study Courses.
