Through the University’s Office of International Education and Development, all SBI students are encouraged to pursue study abroad opportunities prior to graduation. A semester- or year-long study abroad experience enables students to broaden their horizons by living, studying, and interacting with people from different cultural, political, social, and economic backgrounds. For more information contact the Office of International Education and Development or your Academic Advisor.
