Study AbroadInternational Management Institute

Explore the world of business as you earn three credit hours through Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of Management’s International Management Institute (MGMT 315) with study abroad options in one of three locations. Or, you can participate in all three options to earn up to nine credit hours!  

  • Frankfurt, Germany
  • Strasbourg, France
  • Shanghai, China 

Before departing to your host country during spring break, you must attend a pre-session(s) during the spring semester at Case Western Reserve University. Your program will be conducted entirely in English, but you'll have an opportunity to learn some of the country's native language while abroad. 

You must be in good academic standing to participate, but there are no prerequisites, and you can be a CWRU student of any major to participate. If you're an international student, you can participate, but you're responsible for obtaining a visa if required. And, if you need assistance with documents required for visa processing, we can help. 

Estimated Costs

To keep program costs at $1,500 or less, you must make your own flight and meal arrangements (regardless of the airport) to take advantage of any program discounts. Typical program costs include your hotel, local transportation, and fees for professional and cultural visits and the weekend trip.
