2020 European Business Seminar

European Business Seminar


Wednesday, November 26, 2019.

If you have always wanted to go on the European Business Seminar -- the best study abroad program on the planet -- there is a narrowing window of opportunity to go on our program this upcoming summer (2020).

Here is the situation:  we filled the program about two weeks ago; HOWEVER, because we filled our slots so early in the year, we were able to get some additional capacity for those who have applied but are still navigating the application process. 

In this process, we were able to procure a few more spaces for "latecomers" to the program -- specifically, we estimate that we have four spaces available for additional applicants on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Therefore, if you have always wanted to experience Western Europe on a fantastic study abroad program that visits luxury goods manufacturers like no other, please apply as soon as possible.  All majors are welcome.

Also note that you and your parents are welcome to contact me via cell phone (below)  through Thanksgiving break. 

When you apply, make sure that you see the picture of the gondola in Venice on the application page so that you know you are applying to the right program.

The dates for the program this year are June 5th - June 28th, 2020. We return to the US in time for you to begin Summer II courses or begin a summer intership.  

We begin in Rome (including Vatican City), then Florence, the Tuscany region, Modena, Bologna, Padova, Verona, Venice, and other places in Italy that I'm probably forgetting, LOL, then Innsbruck, Austria, then Salzburg, Austria, then Munich, Germany, then Dingolfing, Germany, then Lausanne, Switzerland, then Broc, Switzerland, then Paris, France, then the Normandy region of France, then London, England, then Solihul, England, then Coventry, England, then back to London for departure back to the US!  

Please spend a few minutes looking over our various pages (including  the Gabbino video and, yes, our visit there each year is just as picturesque as the video!) and, after reviewing these pages, if you have any questions about the program, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Easley by cell (voice or text) at 254-723-1673, including nights or weekends  -- even right now. And -- please encourage your parents to contact me should they have any questions!      E-mail is ebs@baylor.edu

  • The European Business Seminar is the first, the oldest, and the largest business school study abroad program in the United States with over 25,000 alumni.
  • Visit companies (e.g., Gucci, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Swarovski Crystal) that very few get to visit because of this study abroad program's exclusive connections
  • Dine at the gorgeous Castello di Gabbiano winery in the lush Tuscany Region of Italy and tour their famous castle, grounds, and winery
  • Tour Italy, Austria, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Germany and France on a private luxury tour coach, then cross over to England on the Eurostar to enjoy the companies and sights of London and beyond
  • Tour a balsamic factory in the authentic balsamic vinegar region of Italy.
  • Visit the crystal-studded offices of Swarovski Crystal where company executives will provide you a personal history of this world-famous company.

Please view the following three minute video about Castello di Gabbiano -- a fantastic company visit that we visit every year. This video shows the magical beauty of the Tuscany Region of Italy and includes not only gorgeous video scenes of the winery but an interview with Ivano Reali, the CEO of Gabbiano, who speaks to European Business Seminar students (when he is in Italy) about the marketing of wines. We also dine at Gabbiano -- the chef is phenomenal and the meal is one that you will never forget . . .
