The European Business Seminar is a very unique study-abroad program that has a long history of affiliation with the national organization International Business Seminars (www.bearsebs.com). As such, this experience is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for Baylor students to interact with European business leaders at numerous businesses throughout Europe, under the guidance of a seasoned Baylor business professor. To see a promotional video for the program, go to www.bearsebs.com and click on the European Business Seminar "scrapbook" on the left side center of the page.
Academically, the European Business Seminar welcomes students from ALL disciplines, business and non-business. For example, Arts & Sciences majors will seek to find multiple ways to generalize the knowledge base of their respective academic disciplines to the European business marketplace. This application of diverse academic disciplines will be a key factor in the work conducted by non-business students, working closely with business students. Resultingly, non-business students will find that the six hours of credit received during the European Business Seminar will significantly enhance their resumes and will provide an important differentiating factor for them when they complete their degrees and go on the market for their career.
On the European Business Seminar, participants are visiting multiple international businesses throughout Europe, with interaction with management in all of these organizations. Related, the European Business Seminar is the only program of its kind where the participants stay in leading European business-class hotels, with an exclusively-for-the-program luxury tour coach that not only provides convenient door-to-door service for Baylor's participants in the seminar when visiting organizations in Europe, but this luxury tour coach, with its designed-for-sightseeing windows, takes participants to each subsequent destination in the seminar.
This aspect of the seminar is a key differentiating factor and is one of its greatest strengths in that the tour coach provides an atmosphere for bonding with fellow seminar participants unlike any other study abroad program.
Additionally, this program stays exclusively in 4-star hotels -- unlike any other study abroad program at Baylor -- that have full & elaborate breakfasts included at no charge for each participant.
The 2016 European Business Seminar begins on June 3 and ends on June 26, giving students plenty of time before Summer II classes on campus if enrolled, and also plenty of time to begin summer internships.
Students regularly tell us that the European Business Seminar is a "life-changing event" and many participants remain in close contact well after graduation because of the bonds formed in this study-abroad opportunity that is so unique.
