Study Abroad Programs

Where SMG students study abroad

While SMG students may choose any of the programs offered by Boston University Study Abroad for which they meet the prerequisites, SMG students often prefer programs that focus on business and offer courses and/or internships in management. Below are some of the most popular programs for SMG students:

Why SMG students study abroad

SMG students study abroad for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • To strengthen proficiency in another language.
  • To experience different perspectives on the world, education, and management practices.
  • To gain a competitive advantage in the job market by demonstrating an awareness of a culture beyond their own and of the global economy.

To accommodate this desire to explore the world, Boston University sponsors one of the largest study abroad programs in the country, with diverse offerings in more than thirty cities on six continents.

How SMG students study abroad

Courses taken and internships completed through BU Study Abroad transfer to BU directly, counting for course requirements as appropriate and toward students’ BU GPAs. If students cannot find a program above that piques their interest, they can choose to complete their non-management electives abroad through one of many other BU Study Abroad programs.
