2014 Summer Session Abroad
Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland

Because most of our part-time MBAs work and are not able to undertake a quarter-long study abroad program, we are pleased to announce a unique opportunity in summer 2014 to study abroad at Lappeenranta University of Technology in Finland for 2 or 4 weeks and earn 3-6 units of MBA credit toward your degree. 

Students can take intensive MBA classes focused on energy, innovation, high tech and new product development, strategy, and international business in late July/early August.  The exact number of MBA units may vary based upon the combination of modules that each student selects. A specific breakdown of modules, sessions dates and UC Davis MBA Quarter Units can be found in the International Exchange Information Sheet for 2014 Summer Program with LUT.

This program is limited to three GSM students per year. If selected, we will send you a Letter of Acceptance and explain what you need to do next to prepare for your studies abroad.

If selected to participate in this program, you will pay your standard student fee per unit to the GSM. (For Bay Area students, the Course Differential Fee credit will be applied.) You will NOT be required to pay tuition to LUT. Housing Scholarships, funded by LUT and awarded by the GSM, are available for up to three selected students. If you are not selected for a housing scholarship, the housing costs are approximately EUR 250-350/week. You will be required to pay for all travel costs, including flights and living expenses in Finland. 

Interested students apply directly to the GSM Exchange Coordinator, Inger Maher. Application materials are to by Friday, April 18, 2014.

If selected to participate, you will need to submit a $500 deposit by May 3,2014.

For more information, or access to a video of the March 6 information session, please contact your program manager.
