Mediterranean Cruise: Italy, Greece, Turkey
Travel Dates: November 30 – December 14, 2014
All study abroad courses in the School of Business at the University of Redlands are distinctive, but this one is truly unique. On Sunday November 30, 2014 a group of faculty, students and their guests will depart for Rome where we’ll spend two days exploring the “Eternal City.” On the evening of the third day we board the Norwegian Jade for a 10 day adventure at sea! The first day of the cruise is spent at sea attending lectures and seminars delivered by experts in European business and economics. On the second day you’ll visit Olympia Greece, the site of the ancient Olympic Games. On day three we’re in Athens, the capital city of Greece and birthplace of western civilization. Day four is spent in Izmir, Turkey on the coast of the eastern Mediterranean. Day five and six are in Istanbul; Turkey’s economic, cultural and historical heart. Day seven and eight are once again at sea for more lectures, seminars and other academic activities. Day eight we’re back in Italy in Naples at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, where we’ll visit the ruins of Pompeii. Then back to Rome for one final night and a farewell dinner. In addition to the seminars delivered aboard ship, students have an opportunity to visit businesses in the Mediterranean region.
This course provides participants with several advantages:
Cost: At $4,400 this trip is one of our least expensive options. In addition, since most meals are included, students save an average of $500 on food costs.
Destination: This course offers three distinct European destinations: Italy, Greece & Turkey. Because the majority of the program takes place aboard ship, travel between destinations is at night while you sleep. No travel time is lost getting from city to city.
Schedule: This program takes place between the Thanksgiving Holiday and Winter Break. Guests are welcome to accompany students and take advantage of shipboard events when we are involved in academic activities.
We are excited to offer our students this unique opportunity to study “aboard” and hope you will consider joining us.
Trip Cost: Approximately $4400 (price subject to change)
