Point Park University's cultural and academic immersion programs in the Rowland School of Business enable students to experience other cultures on a personal level.

Each program includes rigorous academic coursework, cultural activities, networking opportunities, site visits and other experiences designed to broaden students' views of their studies inside the classroom.

Some programs are currently paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but listed below are examples of the fulfilling experiences students have enjoyed through the Rowland School of Business.

Irish Culture and Human Resource Practices Immersion Trip

This trip gives students the opportunity to experience a new culture and engage in research and analysis of human resource functions and competencies that are influenced by culture and impact organizational processes.

Greek Economic Experience

This journey exposes students to Greek culture, history and institutions as they delve deeply into the international economic situation unfolding in Greece, Europe and around the world. Students learn firsthand about the conditions that contributed to current economic and financial affairs, as well as have the opportunity to apply classroom concepts.
