Study Abroad for Business Students


  • Business courses are available in the Fall and Spring semesters at RIT Croatia (Zagreb & Dubrovnik) and RIT Dubai for an easy, seamless study abroad experience (but you are not limited to these locations!).
  • A wide variety of business coursework is available abroad, so you will need to spend some time narrowing down your program choices. Thinking about your priorities in choosing a program (level of cultural immersion, program cost, language of instruction, and location) will help you settle on a good program fit.
  • If you’re an Accounting or Finance major, starting early when planning to study abroad is important to have the most flexibility in finding accounting and finance coursework abroad. But remember that if you’re late to the game, you may still have options, and a study abroad advisor can help you find a program that may work for you.
