We highly encourage and support our Finance majors to take a semester of international study. It's an incredibly valuable learning experience. Pulled out of your comfort zone, you will come to appreciate the nuances of other cultures and how critical it is to be sensitive to them no matter where you are in the world.
You have the option to study abroad at one of the Champlain Abroad campuses during your junior year, in either Montreal, Canada or Dublin, Ireland. In Dublin, many students take the Non-Profit and Social Marketing course where they become involved with the nonprofit organization Hireland. In Montreal, students take Macroeconomics in a Global Economy, where they analyze country-specific socio-cultural, economic and political forces, and the opportunities and challenges they present to international businesses and organizations. At both international campuses you can take the Business Career Internship course and complete an international internship. In addition to working a minimum of 8-10 hours a week, you'll attend seminars where you discuss and evaluate your business experiences.
Alternatively, you can take a semester studying anywhere in the world through our Global Partners Program or one of our third-party international study partners. Our students have study all over the world including Shanghai, China; Amsterdam, Netherlands and Auckland, New Zealand. Working closely with your Program Director, you will be able to accommodate a semester abroad, which could potentially include an international internship, while satisfying all of the required coursework for your Accounting major.
"Global Appreciation" has emerged as an essential competency employers seek. Champlain has taken a proactive approach to cultivating this competency by ensuring that international learning is embedded in the College's curriculum.
Additionally, Champlain offers opportunities for every student to engage in a study-abroad experience. To that end, we designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study. What does this mean to you? You can study in another country, even complete an internship, and still graduate on time.
Living and studying in another country will make you a more culturally aware citizen, and an internationally engaged and cross-culturally sensitive professional.
