Program Overview

 It is critical for business students to understand the global nature of business and to appreciate the importance cultural differences play in conducting business elsewhere in the world.  During the third year of their studies, students in the Carl H. Lindner Honors-PLUS Program participate in a mandatory one-month international program which includes classes at a partner institution, company and cultural visits in several cities in a given geographical region.  Students learn to consider business challenges from a different perspective and to realize how history, politics and culture impact business decisions.

Academic Program and Course Information

Required Course Registration Spring Semester 2018:  INTB3097, Study Abroad - Honors PLUS, 3 credits, and INTB4098 Study Abroad - Honors PLUS, 3 credits
Tuition and fees are assessed based on total enrolled hours for a term. This includes the hours associated with the study abroad class.

Passports and Visas

A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, its best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see the State Department's passport page for more information.

In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access visa information is the US Department of State’s country information page  

UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to knowing and addressing the requirements for your host study abroad destination.

Applying for a visa can be a complicated process. Some UC travelers choose to third party to assist with this process, for example Travisa or A Briggs (mention UC for a possible discount).
