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.
