Students in the JMU marketing program have many opportunities for study abroad. Eleven percent of JMU College of Business majors - almost three times the national average - participate in international programs. Such participation may be partially explained by the wide-array of international programs offered to undergraduate students; varying from summer programs, short-term abroad programs and semester long programs.
The JMU Office of International Programs (OIP) supports a variety of JMU faculty led programs in places like London, England, Salamanca, Spain, and Florence, Italy. Student exchange programs are available with our partner institutions in places like Australia, England, Egypt, Japan, Morocco, South Korea, Spain, Sweden or the United Arab Emirates. Please contact the JMU Office of International Programs for more information.
