Semester, Summer or Year Abroad

Over 100 locations across the globe, including more than 40 accredited business programs in over 20 countries

Living abroad is an unforgettable experience that changes the way you view the world, the art of business, and yourself. Through Kogod and AU Abroad, there are over 100 study and intern abroad programs to choose from, including more than 40 accredited and approved business programs in over 20 countries.

In general, students must have second-semester sophomore standing and a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher to participate in a semester, summer, or year study or intern abroad program. However, different programs have different language, GPA, academic level, and course prerequisites, so all students considering going abroad should pay close attention to individual program requirements, and begin their research and consultation with their Kogod Academic Advisor and study abroad advisors well ahead of time.

Kogod students must also complete the following with passing grades prior to studying abroad:  

  • 8 of 10 General Education requirements, including both ECON-100 and ECON-200
  • LIT-100 and LIT-101 (or the English Competency Exam)
  • MATH-211 and STAT-202
  • ACCT-240 and ACCT-241
  • KSB-211 (Students entering Kogod Fall 2015 and later)

Approval from a Kogod Academic Advisor must also be obtained. In order to gain this approval all Kogod students planning to study abroad must complete the Kogod Study Abroad Pre-Approval Form and meet with their Advisor for their review and signature. Kogod majors should keep in mind that they are allowed to take up to three Kogod core courses and up to two Kogod specialization courses abroad per semester. Kogod minors are allowed to take up to a total of two classes abroad toward their minor.
