Program Description:

As a supplement to its Tourism, Events and Attractions curriculum, the Rosen College of Hospitality Management has developed a study abroad program for undergraduate students interested in International Events at UCF.

This program offers students an excellent opportunity to learn about the process of planning international events and the evaluation of event planning components in three separate countries throughout Europe.  Participants in this program will register for a total of six credit hours by taking Fairs & Festivals (HFT 3798) and International Events (HFT 4796).  Students will need to complete HFT 1000 and/or HFT 2750 as prerequisites for the program and/or be approved by the instructor.

The Exploring Events in Europe Program will be facilitated at UCF for the summer of 2017.  As part of the program, students will travel to Europe for two weeks of activities and educational sessions.  Students will begin their studies at UCF learning about the process of planning international events.  Participants will then travel overseas to tour culturally significant sites in Italy and Austria, highlights to include meeting with organizers of Milan Fashion Week and Expo Milan, the Venice Historical Regatta, Salzburg Festival, and to conclude with a tour of the Vienna's Schonbrunn Palace. 

Classes will include lecture and discussion, review of reading assignments and current event issues, case studies, guest speaker presentations, quizzes or in-class activities, field trips, and festival activities.   While abroad, students are expected to remain engaged in the program’s experiences and try new things.

Students on this program should plan to arrive in Milan, Italy (Milan Malpensa Airport) on the starting day of the program.  To arrive on the starting day of this program, flights must depart the USA the day before the start of the program. The program ends in Vienna, Austria.  Students should not purchase their flights until they have been advised by Study Abroad to do so. Study Abroad advises that you book your flight directly with the airline.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Students will be able to design international incentive programs that meet the needs of incentive trip participants and the trip sponsors. 
  • Students will be able to create a checklist of activities to complete in the planning of an international event.
