In this paper, we will develop the justification for study abroad. We will discuss the current economic climate and its impact on budgets. Next, we will explain the many benefits of the study abroad programs. Then we will propose some less expensive alternatives to the traditional study abroad programs. We will conclude with expectations for the future. "Studying international business in a classroom is a bit like learning how to swim on a grass field" (Taras et al., 2012, p. 11).
