Upcoming Programs

Walker College of Business Faculty-Led Programs

Each academic year, the Walker College of Business offers students the opportunity to study business abroad through short-term courses designed and led by Appalachian faculty. Courses range in length from 10 to 30 days and can fulfill major or elective credit for eligible students.

The 2018-19 Faculty-led Programs  will take students to destinations in Asia, Europe, Oceania and Latin America, with opportunities during winter, spring and summer breaks, as well as summer session one.
