Destination France is a short-term study abroad program in January 2014.  This program combines a unique blend of academic, corporate and cultural experiences to expose students to one of the largest countries in Europe, and a long-time political ally and trading partner of the USA.   Students will also participate in a 3 credit course: IB3580 – Destination France: Doing Business in France.  Students will do pre-departure work/research, engage in in-country events, as well as develop and deliver a research paper on a topic related to France. After covering the background information about France (cultural norms, political and economic system), we will discuss hot issues such as France’s place within the European Union, France’s economic future, France’s immigration challenge. We will also focus more precisely on business/corporate topics such as the French luxury and fashion industries, the French food and alcohol industries, French business etiquette, French-style discrimination in the workplace, opportunities and challenges of entrepreneurship and innovation in France.
