Establishing An Agribusiness Study-Abroad Course In Mexico: A Project In Internationalizing The Curriculum


  • Ames, Glenn C.W.

Study abroad provides students with a cross-cultural experience and a new perspective on the global marketplace. Seven students from the University of Georgia enrolled in the first agribusiness study-abroad course, entitled "International Agribusiness Marketing and Management: Focus on Mexico," at the Universidad Veracruzana in Xalapa during the Maymester 2000. Their curriculum included field trips to agribusinesses, Spanish classes and lectures on Mexican business culture, and NAFTA. As a result, students became more comfortable in cross-cultural environments and more confident in their academic and professional abilities.
