In the interdependent world of the 21st century, no business is unaffected by global events, and the opportunity to experience another culture through study abroad is a priceless aid in learning to understand international exchange.

Focus on Business
While students in the College of Business are eligible to study abroad in any of Valpo’s programs (or, with approval, programs administered by other universities), a couple of Valpo’s offerings are especially tailored for business students.
Students in the College of Business’s Enhanced International Business in German program spend a full academic year in Reutlingen, where they take courses at Valpo’s Reutlingen Study Center and business electives at the Hochschule Reutlingen, Valpo’s partner institution. The program includes an internship with a German business professional.
Valpo’s exchange partnership with La Rochelle Business School on France’s Atlantic coast offers a special opportunity for students to study business and develop their French language skills in this private business school of 1,600 students. La Rochelle Business School students also come to Valparaiso University for a semester of study.
