Students: Get immersed in global leadership overseas

San José State University students are invited to apply for a study abroad program this summer that will take them to three countries in four weeks. As part of the Mass Communications 180 Global Leadership class, students will visit Paris, France for three weeks, Madrid, Spain for one week and Brussels, Belgium for a day trip under the tutelage of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication’s Mathew Cabot. The course runs from June 16 – July 11, 2014.

Mathew Cabot will lead students on a three-country course in Europe.

Cabot, an associate professor at SJSU, will lead the program for the fourth time. Students will gain a global perspective on public relations, advertising and international reputation management, while also looking at political and economic issues on a global level.

In addition to the academic components of the program, students will also have a chance to take in the cultural sites. Some of the activities include a visit to a cheese shop, a boat tour on the Seine River, museum visits, tapas tasting and a trip to the European parliament.

The program is open to upper division undergraduate or graduate students, specifically those in business. There will be assignments before the travel begins and after. Foreign language skills are not a requirement as courses will be taught in English.
