Study Abroad Syllabus
Embargo Lift Date
Over the last several years, the Kelley School of Business has made great strides in increasing the numbers of students who have the opportunity to study abroad, but there was no program which directly addressed the topic of Human Resource Management. As the individual who coordinates the Kelley HR major, I took it upon myself to create a new course which could be considered a minor elective for HR majors. I utilized a tour company to facilitate travel, hotels, and tourism visits, but I created the entire academic experience by myself, from classroom content with relevant guest speakers in Indianapolis to company HR department visits throughout Germany and Switzerland. We had several classes on the IUPUI campus before we travelled and then spent a week each in Germany and Switzerland. I created and implemented this syllabus for a study abroad in 2017 for course D355: Special Topics in International Business - Managerial Perspectives on Globalization.
