Last year's tour had rave reviews and included visits with prominent investment banking firm executives, local government officials, and the 2010 Olympic Committee.  The 2008 Canada Study Tour promises to be even better.  

Come join us on February 14th - 18th, 2008This trip is to provide students who are unable to participate in a 2-week overseas Study Tour with a shorter-term and less expensive international experience that is similar in focus to a 2-week tour.  However, If you go on this trip you are still eligible to go on a full two-week tour over Spring Break. Do both!

This trip will get you internship leads and enable you to identify immediate international business opportunities.  Donít miss out!  As a future business leader, you need to take advantage of the USAís long Presidentís Day weekend and see how business is done in Canada.
