Management & Marketing in the EU

The Program

This three week study abroad program will allow students to gain valuable exposure and experience with the continued evolution of the European Union. The two modules in turn examine the challenges of managing in Europe and applications associated with marketing practices in the EU. Program attendees will learn about:

  • Advertising to the French consumer
  • Distribution channels in France
  • Industrial relations in Europe
  • European human resource management and employee relations

Corporate case studies are integrated into each module. Tentative company visits include Airbus Industrie, Credit Lyonnaise, Aerospatiale and Orange S.A., allowing students to observe and examine first-hand how companies work within the EU structure.
