Travel Dates: TRIP IS FULL

Now September 1 through September 15, 2015

With an illustrious history that encompasses both the Habsburg and Roman Empires, Austria and Italy have been lands of intrigue for scholars, artists and travelers from around the world. This program provides an opportunity to see how business is conducted in two key areas of Central Europe, from Vienna in the north to Rome in the south. Lecture topics and corporate visits focus on sustainability and international marketing, and provide students with the opportunity to compare and contrast business practices in two member countries of the European Union. 

Austria is a country of both historical business significance and cultural enchantment. In the capital city of Vienna you attend lectures at the oldest university in the German-speaking world (founded in 1385) and visit the Schonbrunn Palace, one of the most important cultural monuments in the country.

Your travels to Salzburg include a tour of Mozart’s birth home and a visit to an organic farm certified by Bio Austria, an umbrella organization representing Austria’s organic food producers.  Italy attracts millions of visitors with its warm people, exceptional cuisine, varied land and seascapes, and unmatched artistic and historic wonders. Your visit includes Venice, where you will tour the Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square), and a high-speed Itao train journey to Rome, where you explore the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Vatican City.
