Organizational Behavior in Innsbruck

Join this brand new Stillman School of Business program in Austria!

Over the course of 4.5 days, students will attend Prof. Boroff's class, BMGT 2503, Organizational Behavior, from Sunday evening, May 29, through Friday, June 3; there is also a pre-course class session in April and a post-course session in June. In this international course will be other international students from Europe as well as students from the host institution, Management Center Innsbruck (MCI). Innsbruck is a gorgeous quaint city, host to both the 1964 and the 1976 Winter Olympics. Students will be responsible to arrange their own airflights to Innsbruck, so as to arrive in Innsbruck on May 29. Students will also be responsible to select their overnight accommodations, from a roster of options made available by MCI, and budget for their own meals (estimate about 15 Euros per meal). On Sunday afternoon, May 29, Prof. Boroff will meet with students as the class settles into its coursework over the next week. Students will be on their own after class concludes each day, exploring this charming town with the Alps just outside the campus of MCI. Prof. Boroff has taught at this institution twice.

As students consider this fantastic learning opportunity, they may want to consider adding additional travel days before or after the course concludes to travel, on their own and apart from this course to nearby cities of Salzburg, Austria or Munich, Germany, by train or bus. Vienna is an easy 4 ½ hour train ride from Innsbruck's train station, as are cities in Switzerland and Italy. Come a day earlier and take the Nordkette Cable Car ride from downtown Innsbruck to mountain peaks! Or take a 10-minute train ride to the town of Hall and visit the museum where "thalers" were minted; the word "thaler" morphed to our word, "dollar." Prof. Boroff can suggest other trips that you may wish to fashion for yourself should you extend your travels.

This is considered a 3-credit Summer 2022 semester course. Undergraduate tuition is discounted by 25% for this course. Students will have to register for it during the regular Summer 2022 registration period. The pre-requisite is BMGT 2501.
