International Education


Undergraduate Faculty Led International Courses

Faculty-led international courses are 3-credit intensive study abroad experiences offered during semester breaks. On these courses, a Bentley professor leads his/her students on an immersive learning experience in a region of the world where the professor has expertise. Faculty-led international courses offer students the opportunity to combine cultural activities with business, NGO, or other relevant site visits. Students benefit from personal interactions with companies and organizations they would not encounter as a tourist.

Faculty-led international courses are approximately 10 to 15 days in length during January break, Spring break (as part of a Spring semester course), or in May after exams. The intensive format allows students to study abroad without missing a semester at Bentley.
