Bauer Study Abroad Programs

The Bauer College study abroad programs are designed to give students an opportunity to learn about local business practices "on the ground" by immersing students in local culture, learning from on-site visits with local businesses, and meeting with government officials. Each of these study abroad programs follows a similar model - the week "on the ground" is a component of traditional courses, offered in spring semester (Chile), or summer sessions (Berlin, Prague, India). The non-traditional contact hours spent in-country provide a unique external classroom that complements the traditional classroom or online component of courses upon return to Houston. Each program is unique.
