International Experience

Gain a global perspective through international study.

Our world is shrinking. Technology allows companies to build functional teams across continents, not just cubicles. Study abroad options offered through OBSS International Experience expand your worldview. Participants come home with much more than souvenirs; these experiences provide independence, resilience, and flexibility. In a competitive job market, international experience can help you stand out from other candidates.

OBSS International Experience offers a variety of options; in most cases, students can earn course credits.

Exchange Program

Students can participate in a semester- or year-long academic exchange program. Classes are taught in English, and students can choose from a wide range of business courses. The program is ideal for those entering their junior year in the fall. Exchange program locations include Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Otto von Guericke University, Radboud University, and EM Strasbourg Business School. In most cases, students who exchange through an LSU-sponsored program will be able to pay LSU tuition while using TOPS, and most other financial aid and scholarships.
