Business is global

The Ivy College of Business International Programs Office is here to help you explore the world while taking courses that count toward the completion of your business degree.

Picture yourself here

Our partner institutions around the world offer business classes taught in English that will transfer back to Iowa State University to keep you on track for graduation. You may also take an international study course during a semester break, traveling with and learning from an Ivy professor.

“My senior year began, and I had one more chance to go abroad. I had been waiting for this moment for so long that one or two weeks abroad would not be enough. With lots of help and support from my advisors, I found the perfect program in Rome. I was also ready to skip winter in Ames so an entire semester in Italy seemed like the best idea. Studying abroad is the experience of a lifetime! In what feels like the shortest semester ever, I have developed new skills and become comfortable with the unknown. In the classroom, I have learned as much as I do every day walking through the streets of Rome. I have grown so much, from moving to a new place and now calling it my ‘home away from home.’ The people, food, and amazing Italian views will forever live in my heart and be an exceptional part of my Cyclone adventure.”
—Barbara Salas (’22 finance, entrepreneurship, and international business)
