About Summer Ireland

The Summer Ireland program is packed with incredible opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students looking to expand their international business education outside of the traditional classroom. While traveling abroad, students will learn about Irish culture, history, customs, politics, and international business practices. Most importantly, students will observe how these business practices are different from the United States.
