Travel abroad for your business studies and engage in a new business experience. Whether at a local restaurant on the streets of London or the meeting room of a skyscraper in Shanghai, abroad is the place to go for business. In this globally integrated economy, business students should constantly be aware of what companies are doing abroad.
