The average student’s photo album of their college days might look something like this: Graduation shot. Selfie from the stands of a Mountaineer football game. Portrait on Woodburn Circle.
But for many Chambers College students, their photo albums might contain a bit more flavor: The Great Wall in China. Beaches of Brazil. Indian palaces.
These students aren’t just traveling to destinations abroad. They’re earning credit for it.
Through the Stuart M. and Joyce N. Robbins Center for Global Business and Strategy, the Chambers College has formed relationships with accredited business schools in G-20 countries to provide study abroad and exchange programs for students and faculty. They can explore Brazil, China, India and Nepal, Dubai and Bahrain.

“We got to visit once-in-a-lifetime places like the Taj Mahal and Mount Everest while also seeing firsthand the differences in workplace dynamics across the world. The study abroad trips gave me the opportunity to explore international business without giving up a semester of my college life.”

“What I liked most about the trip was the experience to learn about Chinese business while submerging myself into Chinese culture. If I could, I would do this trip over and over again.”
