EU Business Semester Heidelberg - Fall or Spring

Review this Program


Germany: Heidelberg


"Doing Business in Europe" is the emphasis of this program that is designed especially for North American college students who are interested in studying abroad during the Fall or Spring semester. Credits will be issued based on the U.S. credit system through The College of New Jersey (TCNJ).

Coursework has been developed to fit the needs of students seeking a new perspective on how business is conducted in Europe while being able to take classes taught by local professors and visiting resident professors from the United States.

This is a rare and unique opportunity - choosing to study here will be a decision you will never regret!


This study abroad program includes everything you need to help you make the most out of your experience abroad. To make the transition as seamless as possible, CEPA organizes student housing, courses and includes an extensive cultural program.

Experiential learning is emphasized during this program, as many site visits and professional activities such as a day trip to Strasbourg, France and a weekend trip to Berlin have been included. We feel that learning outside the four walls of the classroom can be very beneficial.

Additionally, students will also benefit from the personal service of an on-site coordinator, there to assist students in the transition to studying abroad and throughout the duration of the program.
