Study Abroad:

Business in Thailand

Thailand is well known by visitors as “The Land of Smiles.” Thai people are very hospitable and happy to share their beautiful country. Thailand is very rich in long history and culture under the old name of Siam (as the origin of the King and I, Siamese Twins, and Siamese cats). Students will enjoy an exotic culture, with all the comforts of a modernizing economy. Thailand has many beautiful beaches, tropical forests and waterfalls for you to explore. While in Thailand, students will visit several business to learn about Business practices in Asia and cultural and historical sites to familiarize themselves with Thai culture and history. Students will spend 5 weeks in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, and a week in Phuket, a well-known tourist destination with amazing beaches and pristine water.

“Go to Asia! I never thought I would go, but [when I did, the experience] was totally life-changing.”

—Katie Smeland, hospitality business management
