"I’ve been really happy with how applicable and real-world the class content has been. There’s a good mix of taking a bit of a dive into the theory, but then making sure the true focus in on real-world application."

Partners in Experiential Learning

Semester at Sea helps create global citizens by encouraging students to explore different perspectives and develop new ways to apply the lessons you’ve learned. The CSU College of Business prioritizes those same values and our programs emphasize real-world applications for our coursework. This shared focus on experiential learning makes Semester at Sea and the College of Business natural academic partners.

Supporting educational opportunities for others

Both institutions also believe in making their programming more accessible. Beyond just the tuition benefit, by enrolling in a College of Business program, Semester at Sea alumni are helping others enjoy the same study abroad opportunities they got to experience. 5% of net tuition from Semester at Sea alum will be used in a scholarship to aid College of Business students in participating in study abroad programs. In addition, our program is providing another 5% of net tuition back to Semester at Sea so that they can create a new scholarship that will enhance their diversification efforts and provide more opportunities for students interested in attending Semester at Sea. 

This agreement helps College of Business and Semester at Sea students alike expand their business and global mindsets.
