Summer 2017

Dates: June 4- July 2


Program Description:
The College of Business Administration has partnered with ICN Business School, allowing students the opportunity to study at a school that is “at the heart and crossroads of Europe, both geographically and academically.” ICN’s 4-week summer program is the perfect solution for students who are unable to study abroad for a full semester but understand the importance of an international experience. Students will return with a greater understanding of European institutions, markets, cultures, and business cultures indispensable in a world dominated by intense globalization. By living and working together in an intercultural students group during an intensive business program, students have ample opportunities to interact with peers from around the world, build long-lasting friendships, and widen their knowledge of global business practices.

Program Structure and Assessment
The academic program is four weeks in duration, from June 6 to July 3, 2016. Students should arrive on June 5 and depart on July 3. All classes are taught in English with a curriculum including 3 concentrations: European Institutions, Management & Business in Europe, and Educational Visits. Classes alternate between ICN’s campus in Metz and their campus in Nancy and include professional and cultural visits during the first three weeks of study. During the fourth week, students travel to Paris, Normandy, Val de Loire and Brussels for more cultural and educational visits.
The curriculum is broken into two parts. In Part 1, students will participate in each of the two modules, European Institutions, and Management & Business in Europe, as well as participate in Educational Visits. Educational visits include:
  • Metz Cathedral and City
  • Metz Centre Pompidou Museum
  • Strasbourg European Parliament and City
  • Luxembourg Court of Justice and the European Union and City
  • Brussels European Commission
  • American War Cemetery and Landing Beaches
  • Caen War Memorial
  • Mont-Saint-Michel
  • Eiffel Tower – Bateaux Mouches
  • Versailles or Louvre Museum
In Part 2, students choose one among three concentrations: European Management, European Marketing or European Management of Luxury. Upon successful completion of the program, students will earn 3-4 credits that may be applied towards their UCF degree requirements where applicable. These credits will be transfer credit and will require a transient form. Contact the COBA Associate Director of International Programs, Holly Bouma, to determine if the credits can be applied towards your business major and/or minor. A French language course (elective worth 1 credit) is also available for all levels of instruction, beginner through advanced.
