Lindsay Kurkela of Poughquag participated in the business studies program in Europe

CONWAY, SC (06/14/2019)– The Business Studies in Europe faculty-led education abroad program at Coastal Carolina University teaches students how the basic principles of management are applied in different socioeconomic environments. Eighteen CCU students took the education abroad trip this past May for credit.

They learned about different cultures in Europe (French, German, Czech and Finnish) and how they adapt to the business environment in which they operate. Students also learned about Europe’s history, culture and economy and how businesses in Europe are adapting to the integration of the European economy and to the recent financial crisis and recovery in Europe.

By traveling abroad, students gain a global perspective, visit multinational companies to examine their operation and work with European students in global teams.

Among the students on the trip:

Lindsay Kurkela, a marketing major from Poughquag, NY, 12570.
