Study Abroad provides a meaningful exposure to a foreign culture and business environment, and is an integral part of the International Business program. The University of Nevada, Reno is a member of the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) that provides courses in language, business, and cultural studies in more than a dozen universities worldwide, in Australia, Chile, China, Costa Rica, England, France, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, and Thailand. Students in International Business are encouraged to study in their country of choice through USAC. Credit is transferable to their Nevada degree tracks and the IB major advisor can help ensure that these courses fit the requirements of the major. USAC has scholarships available for study abroad.
