Study Abroad

The University of Montana College of Business prepares students to compete successfully in a globally competitive economic environment.

International opportunities include:

  • International exchange opportunities for students and faculty
  • Faculty-directed study-abroad courses during the academic year and summer
  • Courses with an international focus taught at undergraduate and graduate levels

Each of these opportunities exposes our students to people, cultures and ways of doing business in other countries.

SoBA Courses with an International Focus

Business students should contact Professor Nader Shooshtari, International Programs Director for the UM College of Business, to learn more about study abroad or international exchange opportunities.

Montana World Trade Center

The College of Business is also home to the Montana World Trade Center (MWTC). The MWTC works to increase international trade through public-private partnerships, business networking and student education. In addition to being the only academic affiliated World Trade Center, the MWTC also offers internship experiences for SoBA students.

Office of International Programs

We also encourage students to take advantage of additional study-abroad and exchange programs offered by other UM academic units through UM's Global Engagement Office and in cooperation with academic institutions across the country.
