This summer Joseph Terrian, assistant dean of undergraduate programs for Marquette’s College of Business Administration, led a group of Marquette students to Antwerp for the 25th time. The three-week study abroad program began in 1992 and continues to promote cross-cultural understanding of business concepts through coursework, corporate visits and excursions. The success of the program is largely due to the strong relationship developed between Marquette and the University of Antwerp.
The partnership enables program participants to learn about the European economy and business environment from faculty at the University of Antwerp. Students study a variety of subjects, including business, economic, social and cultural ramifications of the European Economic and Monetary Union. Topics have included the economic outlook in Europe, cross-cultural management, sales management in Europe and internationalization strategies.
