Study Abroad

Study Abroad Options in the Marketing Major

The Marketing curriculum was built to make an international experience as easy as possible. During your junior year, we highly encourage and support our Marketing 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, students take  Non-Profit Social Marketing and Digital Marketing. In Montreal, students often complete their internship during their semester abroad. Montreal companies, such as Origin Design + Communications, Ltd. and Toc Toc Communications are asking for our Marketing students. Students can complete their studies and intern for global companies in marketing and entertainment.

Thanks to the Freeman Foundation, many of our Marketing students have also had the opportunity to study abroad and complete internships in Shanghai, China over the summer.

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 China, Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, France and Peru. 

Marketing majors interested in obtaining an international internship are also eligible for the Sarah Ramsey '12 Strong Scholarship. Learn more about the Sarah Ramsey Scholarship. 

Working closely with your Faculty Advisor, 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 Marketing 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.
