Undergraduate Travel Seminars

Due to the dynamic nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the difficulties surrounding international travel, Suffolk University will not be offering any Global Travel Seminars at the undergraduate level in the spring of 2021. Please check back in with us during the end of summer/beginning of fall for updates on offerings for undergraduates in March and May 2022.

Any students in the Global Business Major looking for opportunities that satisfy the travel requirement should contact the Undergraduate Programs Office at 617-573-8345 or the Center for International Programs and Services at 617-573-8034 with questions. Please email us to ask any additional questions beyond what is found on this page or for additional information.

“When you’re physically there, all of a sudden, everything you learned in the classroom matters, and it gives you a sense of relevance” – George Moker, faculty advisor for Italy.

Your pre-travel classroom sessions will help you get the most out of your experience abroad. You’ll learn the ins and outs of the businesses you’ll be visiting.

Once you arrive, you’ll be prepared to meet with business leaders and learn how their business operates across national borders. Executives will also share some of the unique challenges and opportunities of having a global business.

Cultural awareness and sensitivity is a big part of global business. Immersed in a new culture, you’ll learn how to interact and communicate with people who come from different backgrounds.

The best time to enroll in a Global Travel Seminar is during your sophomore or junior year. By then, you’ll have a strong foundation in business and you won’t be preoccupied with graduation and job searching.

Contact the Undergraduate Programs Office at 617-573-8345 to see how a Global Travel Seminar fits into your program of study. Global Seminars satisfy the Travel Requirement for the Global Business Major.

“In one week, I learned how to be a successful business person. There is a large part of me that wishes the week never ended. I formed relationships with incredible people and gained so much knowledge in such a short time. Going forward, I know I will reference the lessons learned from this incredible experience, and this will definitely remain a highlight of my young adult years"
