Brief description of the program: This two-week program will provide you with an opportunity to study international accounting abroad through a combination of classroom, online and international learning experiences. The first portion of the course combines both online and classroom instruction, including pre-departure meetings and discussions, followed by a two-week trip to Dublin, Ireland, Paris, London, England and Paris, France.
The program focuses on visiting international firms and organizations related to accounting in these 3 cities, including the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), Paris Stock Exchange and select public accounting and financial services firms. During these business visits, you will have the opportunity to interact with industry professionals representing firms and organizations in all 3 countries.
You will experience the rich history and culture of three very different capital cities. In Dublin, you will have the chance to explore the five quarters of the city, including St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Trinity College. Then in London, you’ll enjoy various walking tours, the Tower of London, and a live stage performance in London’s acclaimed theatre district. In Paris, the trip includes a visit to the Louvre, the Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Musee d’Orsay, with an evening cruise on the River Seine.
