Study Abroad China

Studying abroad is one of the greatest opportunities of your academic career.  There’s nothing quite like seeing what you study come to life in the global classroom.

The College of Business has several different options, from short-term 10-day intensive programs to semester or one-year student exchange opportunities.

Not sure which is the best option for you?

The first step is studying abroad is to meet with a study abroad advisor. Appointments can be made by calling:  303-352-7001 or by emailing:  [email protected].

Short-Term Faculty Led Study Abroad Programs

Semester and One-Year Study Abroad Opportunities

MSU Denver College of Business has study abroad agreements with several international partner universities where you may study either for a semester or a full academic year.

Students attending a university partner will do so as either a direct enroll student or as an exchange student. With direct enrollment, students earn transfer credits applicable towards their degree and do not pay MSU Denver tuition; rather, they pay all costs directly to the host university. MSU Denver will then recognize these transfer credits as valid towards the student’s degree.

As an exchange student, you earn specific MSU Denver credits and pay MSU Denver tuition. Students are also responsible for fees at the host institution, plus additional costs of being abroad (housing, airfare, meals, etc.).
