Short-term Programs

Short term education abroad tours are targeted to business majors who cannot spend a full semester abroad.  The HBS offers a one week spring break program and a two week summer program in May after the spring semester ends to one or more countries. The program typically involves classroom work prior to departing and during the time abroad, accompanied by a wide array of cultural and business tours. These intensive programs provide three to six advanced business credits and are normally for students who already have HBS Upper Division Status in a business major.

Countries recently visited on short term tours include: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, Cuba, Fiji/New Zealand, England, France, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain and Thailand.

Studying Abroad Is More Affordable Than You Think

We understand that studying abroad is a major economic proposition, yet St. Cloud State has made every effort to maintain the programs at a level that is comparable to what it costs to attend in St. Cloud.
