Budapest Summer Study Program

Budapest 2011

At the Mason School of Business, we strongly encourage all students to gain international experience.  In order to offer students a variety of possibilities as well as accommodate their curricular needs, we have taken a group of W&M students to Budapest, Hungary to study at Corvinus University.  An immersive and experiential study experience, the students learn about business in a Central European context. 

This study abroad program reached beyond the classroom doors and emphasized a comparative academic experience.  Students engaged in active learning; everything from researching local business practices and touring international business headquarters (Red Bull and Deutsche Bank) to cultural outings at national points of interest.  Also included was a 3-day excursion to Prague and a 2-day study tour to Vienna.
