Spencer McGeeProfessor Carol HeeterBusiness 207January 30th, 2017 Step 1A company called CISabroad offers the opportunity upon acceptance to study abroad in many different countries around the world. Each country has many different cities with universities you can choose to study in. I choose Sydney Australia, I would travel to Sydney to attend Macquarie university for fall semester of late July to early December. While there, I would be studying international business and learning about the Australian culture. The study program would benefit me as I could further my knowledge of international business and global operations.I would be given initiative through the company until classes start and then I would be dependent upon myself to succeed. My role while on this study program would be a student to learn more about international business and the Australian culture. Upon completion of the semester I would take away new knowledge and understanding of international business and a different culture.
