In July, students from Romain College of Business will travel to Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences in Germany for three weeks of classwork and cultural immersion. They will join the ranks of more than 100 students from the College who have studied abroad over the last eight years via USI’s International Summer University.
Last year’s contingent numbered 18 students. Dr. Daria Sevastianova, associate professor of economics, accompanied the group and taught a course on Economics of Globalization. Highlights of the itinerary included visits to Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris; tours at ZF in Lemförde, a supplier to major auto manufacturers, and at Hellmann Logistics; and networking with local leaders and other international students. Mayor Strangmann of Osnabrück welcomed the group with a reception at Peace Hall, where the Treaty of Westphalia was signed in 1648.
USI offers International Summer University in collaboration with other participating schools. In 2018, USI students were among about 70 students from around the world who participated.
