BBA International Programs is a study abroad office dedicated specifically to McCombs students. Over 40% of McCombs students study abroad!

We prepare students to become effective leaders in the global workplace. By maintaining business school-to-business school partnerships, our programs allow our students to take classes that apply directly to their degree plan at some of the top institutions across the globe, including over 25 schools in more than 30 countries. BBA International Programs understands the unique needs of business students, including navigating their degree requirements, student organizations, internships and recruiting. 

Studying abroad sets a student apart - it demonstrates self-reliance, motivation, and an ability to take risks and compete in an cross-cultural business environment. Students who return from study abroad programs have an expanded worldview that international companies look for in a candidate.

Semester Programs

McCombs students will attend a university in another country and take classes taught by local professors. Most programs offer courses taught in English, but several foreign language options are available. Participants will plan their own courses, housing and activities. Semester Programs are independent, immersive and give students the opportunity to grow, learn, travel and form international relationships.

Summer Programs

BBA and MPA-specific programs allow a cohort of UT students to travel abroad while taking business classes from a McCombs professor. Maymester Faculty-Led students are enrolled in an intensive one-course program. Summer Faculty-Led students are enrolled in a longer two-course program, in which the second course is taught by a foreign professor. Courses for each location are predetermined and housing, company visits, and excursions organized by UT are included.
