Study Abroad Students Head for Italy
Eighteen FCBE students will be headed to Volterra, Italy for an immersive study abroad experience in Tuscany, Ireland. They will explore International Management through business visits to various industries including banking, chocolate manufacturing, entrepreneurism, and more. Above you will find the 2023 cohort in one of their pre-departure classes where they learned Italian etiquette, banking trends in Italy and cultural expectations from one of FCBE’s alumni, Shelby Elkins who now lives in Rome. Students will earn three hours of academic credit hours while gaining valuable career skills. The group will be led by faculty program leader, Dr. Kathy Tuberville.
