Study Abroad: Expand Your Horizons and Build an International Network

leave a comment »

Holland College has more than 150 articulation agreements with universities, colleges and other post-secondary institutions around the world. These agreements enable graduates of the college to continue their education and earn further credentials quickly and economically. For example, students complete a Holland College diploma program in two years, and then study at a university for as little as two more years to earn a degree. Information about these agreements can be found on the Holland College website under Degree Pathways.

If you’re a student at Holland College, you don’t have to wait until you graduate before you travel. Many of the college’s two-year diploma programs include study tours as part of the curriculum. In the past year, students from the Professional Golf Management program travelled to Spain for two weeks, students from Sport and Leisure Management went to Costa Rica and Belize, and Tourism and Travel Management students went on a European cruise to Italy and France.

The college has also entered into an agreement with Hanze University in the Netherlands so that students from International Hospitality Management and some of the college’s business management programs such as Business Administration and Accounting Technology may participate in a Summer Institute called Doing Business in Europe. This will give students the opportunity to expand their horizons, their knowledge, and their networks, giving them skills that will greatly enhance their employability when they graduate.
