Business Analytics co-majors/minors who wish to study overseas should begin the advising process as early as possible in order to determine the proper sequencing of courses to ensure they can include a summer or semester abroad into their plans. It should be noted that the first-year VSB students cannot study abroad (with the exception of the Global Citizens Program), and students must meet prerequisite requirements for their overseas institution.
Tell your academic advisor that you are interested in study abroad at each registration appointment. Together, identify the best terms to go abroad, based on the courses in your four-year-plan.
Some things to consider for Business Analytics co-majors:
Business Analytics must be paired with another major.
Many of the BUSA required courses are difficult to locate abroad as this is still an emerging field in many locations.
ECO 3137 is possible in some locations with approval from ECO
MKT 2240 and MIS 2030 is also available in some locations
It is important to note that only one BUSA course can double count towards another major or minor.
Search the OEA Course Approval History database to select from more than 3,000 study abroad courses that have already been pre-approved for liberal education requirements and a growing list of technical courses.
The Course Approval History database is not all-inclusive and students can work with an OEA advisor to submit additional courses for review.
Don't forget - VSB has a list of policies and limitations specifically focused on study abroad. Make sure you're aware of these as you plan your overseas experience.
