School of Business International Education

Through BCIT School of Business international programs, students and faculty develop global perspectives by incorporating first-hand knowledge of the larger world. They gain knowledge specific to the economy, culture, government, and everyday life of the country in which they study or teach.

Globalization is prominent in today's business world. Emerging leaders will be expected to speak multiple languages, work internationally, and bridge cultural differences to achieve social, economic, and political objectives. School of Business international programs enable students and faculty to advance as global citizens.Receive credits for academic courses, learn about European business practices by visiting international companies, and ultimately, be fully immersed in the culture by means of guided tours, activities, sports, interaction with local people, and other events.

BCIT School of Business works with partner institutions to provide study abroad options in a variety of countries including Italy, Austria, Finland, and England. In addition, School of Business hosts a Summer Field School each year that enriches the academic experience and provides professional development opportunities for BCIT faculty and staff.

The knowledge and exposure to the world that I've gained in the BCIT summer study tour was truly a life changing experience.  The immersive and intense nature of the program allowed me to see a large cross section of people, cultures and nations.
