Baylor University Credit
Note that, due to significantly increasing demand for the European Business Seminar, we will honor course requests by order of paid applications to the program, with earlier enrollees getting preference on classes desired.
Participants in the European Business Seminar will enroll at Baylor for 6 hours of credit. Note that Baylor discounts summer tuition. There are a number of options for the two courses for the program, so please look at them on the application.
NOTE: Professor Easley will work with you to find the best way for these classes to work for you in your particular degree program.
Note that all study abroad programs have three major cost components, regardless of the program: 1) the program cost (four-star business-class hotels, exclusive company visits, custom tour guides, various meals, health insurance, intra-Europe transportation, etc.), 2) round-trip airfare from the continental US to Europe and back, and 3) registration and tuition fees at Baylor for six hours (two courses) while on the program in Europe. [Note that another program (Baylor in Great Britain) has an additional major cost component that we do not have: three travel excursions within Europe that cost an additional $2985.00 if you do all three (Paris, Rome, and Prague, approximately $995 each). Since our program is a traveling study abroad program, going to multiple countries and cities, we do not have this travel excursion expense, but it should be factored in to other programs where applicable when comparing the costs of programs.]
Note: Registration and tuition expenses for the two three-hour courses for the seminar (Baylor University course credit) are separate from the program cost and airfare and will not be billed until May of 2018 by Baylor. Prior to that time, Dr. Easley will work with you to determine the best courses for you specifically for the program.
