The program is divided into 3-parts:

  • Pre-Departure Orientations and Workshops – Four cohort meetings with your faculty leader and program assistant in the spring term will help to prepare you for your time abroad.
  • Field Study – Company visits and lectures comprise the academic portion of your two weeks in-country.
  • Post-Program Project – You will complete a project (details determined by the faculty member) that acts as a summary for your experience.

While in Dublin, students will be able to access facilities and engage in classroom lectures at Griffith College, a private Irish college.

Walk-In Advising Hours: By Appointment Only

Kia Ora! I'm Brad, a Pittsburgh transplant who discovered a passion for international education during my own study abroad experiences here at Pitt. My time abroad took me on back-to-back semester programs to Costa Rica and New Zealand. I’ve also had the good fortune to travel throughout Canada, Fiji, Panama, Nicaragua, Spain, and Switzerland. Now, as the International Programs Coordinator for Pitt Business, I get to help others have their own memorable experiences abroad! Outside of the office you can find me snapping photos around the city, exploring the outdoors, and planning future adventures both near and far. Get in touch with me to chat about study abroad at bradminer@pitt.edu or 412-383-7136.
