Three Models for Short-Term Study Abroad
Sachau, Daniel; Brasher, Niel; Fee, Scott
Journal of Management Education, v34 n5 p645-670 Oct 2010
Nearly 250,000 U.S. college students participate in study abroad programs each year. A growing proportion of students are participating in short-term study abroad programs. Despite the large number of students in these programs, there are relatively few articles that describe how to start or manage a short-term, business-related, study abroad program. With this in mind, this article includes three examples of short-term study abroad programs: the summer semester abroad, the study tour, and the service-learning trip. Benefits of short-term study abroad programs are discussed. The article also includes tips for designing and managing the programs. The article is intended as a resource for faculty who are considering taking students abroad. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
