In an exchange program, a UT Dallas student, paying UT Dallas fall or spring tuition, switches spots with a student at a foreign university. Exchange programs give students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a culture different from their own and earn business course credit at the same time. For more information on the exchange programs that UT Dallas has to offer, please visit Education Abroad.

UT Dallas exchange programs are subject to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) guidelines.

Since internships are required for all JSOM students, why not take your internship abroad? International internships are a great way to get hands-on experience in the field you are interested in while immersing yourself in a foreign culture. For more information, please make an appointment with AK Sharif

These trips will help students develop awareness and realize the importance and benefits of a global perspective by participating in cultural activities, seminars delivered by international corporations and universities, and complementary campus activities.
