The COVID-19 pandemic has presented an unprecedented challenge for students interested in studying abroad this year. However, the Mandel School is pleased to announce that study abroad courses are going virtual again this spring! Virtual study abroad courses provide an opportunity for students to engage in global and intercultural learning with diverse professionals across the globe without having to leave home.
