Study Abroad in Panama

The School of Business is proud to offer an International Business course in Panama, during spring break.  The course was first offered in 2010, and it will again be offered in Spring of 2012.  The course is designed for both undergraduate and graduate business students.  Students stay at the City of Knowledge, on the outskirts of Panama City, Panama, near the Panama Canal.  Students are given the opportunity to learn from local professional and academic guest speakers.  Visits are made to local businesses (e.g. banking, tourism, transportation, logistics, entrepreneurial) and institutions of administration, learning and government (e.g. Panama Canal Authority, environmental authority, universities). The course provides general international business knowledge as well as focused information about emerging markets, Latin America, environmental issues, international banking and currency practices, and trade/transportation/logistics. In addition to classes held in Panama, multiple classes are held at EIU before departure in preparation for the trip and upon return for concluding course activities.
