Enrollment is open for summer course in international business
DEARBORN---The University of Michigan-Dearborn's School
of Management is partnering with the University
of Padua in Italy to offer a summer program for undergraduate students
wishing to study international business.
The International Summer Program
in Management (ISPM) will present "Business Strategies &
Procedures for Growth: European vs. American Approaches" July 17
through August 20 on the U-M Ann Arbor
campus. The program is open to students from all undergraduate majors.
"In today's global economy, students with international experience
have a significant advantage on the job market," according to Aaron
Ahuvia, professor of management studies at UM-Dearborn. "Students
in the International Summer Program in Management will study cutting-edge
international business topics with students from around the world. This
year's course combines seminars from top Italian professors who are flying
in to teach this course, with seminars from UM-Dearborn professors."
The ISPM offers more than a typical class, including extracurricular
social events and participative learning experiences. The program's cost
is the same as a 4-credit course plus a $200 activity fee. There is no
textbook, so this can help offset the cost, Ahuvia said.
To register, students must enroll in both IB486a (CRN 32190) and IB486b
(CRN 32191) and submit an application online at http://www.ispm.umd.umich.edu/.
Class size is limited.
