The School of Business remains committed to offering its students quality international education opportunities. The University Study Abroad Office continues to monitor the global situation and will make decisions on future programs as the situation develops.
Take Your Hotty Toddy on the Road
As the author Roy T. Bennett put it, “Great things don’t come from comfort zones.” If you’re ready to leave yours, to embrace a new country, a new culture and a deeper understanding of how business works on a larger scale, you’re ready to join other Ole Miss business students who have roamed the world.
Employers are often looking for applicants with curiosity, problem-solving skills, confidence and adaptability—all attributes you’ll develop while studying abroad.
Are you ready to study abroad?
- Get your courses approved by a department chair prior to taking the class to ensure it will count toward degree completion. It is up to the Department Chair of the related subject to determine a course’s equivalency.
- Check with the Advising Office for final approval (Check out the AACSB and EQUIS Accredited Universities and Schools, as they are strongly preferred)
- Apply on the Study Abroad website.
- Start packing for a fun-filled adventure. Don’t forget your passport!

In fact, in reflection, it was one of the most inspiring academic experiences. As a business major, I have taken primarily business focused courses.
