Economics

Develop and explore your understanding of world economics by studying abroad. Learn how people across the world satisfy their wide array of needs. Analyze how cost-benefit analysis and other concepts can help make decisions which increase satisfaction. Experience how firms maximize their profits by achieving greater efficiency in a variety of different markets.

All of this and more can be accomplished by traveling to many of our programs. Macquarie University in Australia, ESSCA Angers in France, Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University in Japan, University of Oslo in Norway, and Kingston University in the U.K. are just a few examples of possible study abroad destinations through GVSU.

Students interested in combining their study abroad experience with an internship, or those looking to focus solely on an internship, have many options. Customized internships are available in a few locations through GVSU internships, as well as other programs such as ELAP and World Endeavors.
