The undergraduate economics program encourages students to consider enriching their undergraduate experience by studying abroad at some point during their undergraduate tenure. Studying abroad is widely defined as either study, work, internship, volunteer or research opportunities abroad during your college career. Studying abroad provides students with not only more awareness of cultural literacies, but further enhancement of their education by providing them with the opportunity to compare and contrast different economies and regimes. Many students consider their study abroad experience to be a watershed moment in their studies. With a bit of careful planning, study abroad can be worked into most any economics student's 4-year schedule.
Carnegie Mellon's Study Abroad Office and Office of International Education are dedicated to helping students explore and realize their opportunities abroad. Additionally, economics majors qualify for both Carnegie Mellon study abroad scholarships and Dietrich College study abroad scholarships.
