International Management Practices' Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What are the requirements to participate in the trip?
A. Students must have sophomore standing (minimum of 30 credit hours) in order to participate. Academic performance will be evaluated on the basis of company research, class attendance, participation during the company site visits, and a summary paper of the experience due upon return from the trip.
Q. How much does it cost to participate in the trip?
A. Estimated costs of each International Management Practice trip will include normal AU tuition plus approximately $3,000 for airfare and room, partial board and local transportation. Actual costs vary depending upon changes in airfare prices, variations in expenses in the individual countries and variations in the value of the US dollar as compared to the value of the currency of the country to be visited. Actual costs for each course trip are firmly established 30 - 60 days before departure.
Q. Is the flight included in the program fee?
A. No, the flight is not included in the program fee. This allows students to take advantage of early registration dates and book flights as early as possible to lock in the best prices. This also provides students the flexibility to take advantage of any frequent flyer mile programs or other airline discounts.
Q. How can I use the credits in my degree program?
A. Kogod students will be able to use the 2 credit hour course in the Foreign Language Cross-cultural area or as a Free Elective. Non-KSB students should speak with the academic advisors in their schools to see how the credits can be used.
