International Business Seminar in France

Program Dates
Thursday, October 5, 2017 to Saturday, October 14, 2017

The ASU College of Business fall study abroad trip to Paris, the City of Lights, remains one of the most popular because of the confluence of business, culture, fashion, history, art, and food.  We will enjoy Fine dining restaurants and sidewalk cafés. Shop on the Champs-Elysees, the world’s most well- known avenue, 2 miles long and 300 feet wide.  We will enjoy planned visits to immerse you into the French culture as we visit some of the most iconic international sites, The Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, and Castle at Angers.  We will climb the Eiffel Tower, explore The Louvre, tour The Palace of Versailles, and enjoy an evening cruise down the Seine River.  The business educational experience takes place at the University of Angers, a 2 hour TGV train ride away, where it is international week and students converge from Poland, Belgium, France, China and Russia.  You will leave with a deeper appreciation and knowledge of multi-country commerce and global awareness of the challenges of doing business around the globe.
