Scheller College of Business students are fortunate to have significant free elective and management elective flexibility in their degree requirements, enough to participate in one or two study abroad programs and still stay on track for graduation.
Students interested in international business are encouraged to participate in at least one study abroad program or complete the International Plan, which is a challenging academic program that develops global competency within the context of the Management major.
The Georgia Tech Office of International Education offers summaries of each study abroad program. Management students have access to many study abroad programs that offer courses that apply directly to Management degree requirements.
At the Office of International Education website you can:
- Search for a study abroad program based on location or which semester you would like to travel
- Compare program costs
- View over 60 study abroad programs for business administration.
- The Budapest Program on leadership and social entrepreneurship is a recent addition to the list of summer study abroad programs, and it offers 9 MGT credits including an on-site project component.

The Division of Professional Practice offers opportunities for students to find paid international work experience directly related to his or her major. They also offer valuable information for housing, passports or visas, and all the pertinent information students need before working abroad.
Students interested in studying abroad, working abroad, or completing the international management certificate should look into the International Plan. The International Plan builds global competence by requiring students to engage in a minimum of twenty-six weeks of international experience (work, research, or study) related to their discipline, to develop a proficiency in a second language, and to take internationally-oriented coursework. This experience provides students a deeper global competency than traditional international opportunities
Dr. Chuck Parsons is the Scheller College of Business faculty representative for the International Plan. E-mail for questions regarding the International Plan, or if you are interested in signing up.
