Program Description


Dublin River Liffey

Dublin Croke Park

MGT 302 focuses on international business and this program will occur as an optional extension of the course following the end of the semester, where students will be able to complete a portion of their coursework abroad. A key learning objective for MGT 302 is that students will identify, research, examine and evaluate how culture, government, currency exchange, country resources and economic practices influence business activities – and what better way is there to learn about these topics than traveling to Ireland in May and experiencing them firsthand?!
During this Post-Spring program, students will have the opportunity to explore the Irish cities of Dublin and Limerick following their Spring semester coursework. There is no shortage of cultural and business exposure for students in these destinations. Dublin, the capital of Ireland, is known as a “lively city that is as intimate as a village and as friendly as your local Irish pub.” Limerick is known as the sports capital of Ireland, and the program will look particularly at business through the lens of sports, including the well-known sports of football (soccer) and rugby and the traditional Irish sports of Gaelic football and hurling. See a broad range of businesses up close while experiencing the Irish culture and explore what it’s really like to do business in an international context.

Location Details

The historic city of Dublin, first inhabited in prehistoric times, has become a tech hub, with many of the big players headquartering their European operations in the city. With its medieval castles and cathedrals as well as its splendid Georgian architecture from the city's 18th century heyday, Dublin is a living museum - and it has plenty of actual museums to tell the story of its changing role throughout the ages. Today Dublin continues its historic cosmopolitan outlook with a wide variety of cuisine and its place as a top location for global business in Europe.

A city dating back to 812 AD, Limerick is full of historical architecture as well as modern buildings. Known as the sports capital of Ireland, it is also a multinational hub and one of the country’s main economic regions. Limerick’s position on the River Shannon has historically made the city economically important, although the manufacturing and services-based shift of the Irish economy has altered its main drivers accordingly. Limerick is also a hub for higher education, with a student population of over 20,000.

  • MGT 302: Principles of International Business (3 credits)
*Please note that this course counts towards your Spring semester load. If registering for this course will put you in a course-overload situation, you will need to speak with your academic advisor for an override.  

Course Format

The MGT 302 course will be taught during the Session B or C Spring 2020 semester, either as an in-person course, i-course or an o-course. The study abroad portion of the program will begin at the conclusion of the Spring term. One of the primary learning objectives from MGT 302 is to identify, research, examine and evaluate how culture, government, currency activities, country resources and economic practices influence business. By being able to investigate these influences in person through the Ireland GIE, students are provided a unique and powerful learning opportunity to investigate international business first hand.   

Students will need to register in a specific section of one of Dr. LaRosa's MGT 302 courses in order to participate in the program. 

In order to prepare for the program, there will be three mandatory pre-departure meetings throughout Spring semester. These meetings will be available via Zoom for Online students. Dates and times TBD.

Special Considerations

Below you will find information that may help you in planning for your study abroad experience. Early discussions and planning can help to support you in having a positive experience abroad. We invite you to meet with the International Coordinator for this program to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Physical Considerations

Study abroad participants may find themselves walking or taking public transit abroad more frequently than they are accustomed at their home campus.

Disability Accommodations Abroad

Individuals with disabilities can and do study abroad, but may find accessibility and accommodation in one of more of this program’s locations very different from the United States. For example, in Ireland, older city sections and more rural towns are less accessible due to centuries-old architecture. This includes cobblestone streets, narrow staircase entryways, and small indoor spaces.

In general, the Study Abroad Office cannot guarantee access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites on this program. Any student who anticipates needing any kind of special accommodation due to a disability should contact the ASU Study Abroad Office early in the planning process to investigate the availability of accommodations (including accessible facilities) on this specific program. Contact the Disability Resource Center and your Disability Access Consultant to include them in the discussion; be sure to give your Disability Access Consultant permission to speak with the Study Abroad Office on your behalf. You can find additional information and resources on our Students with Disabilities page.

LGBTQIA Students Abroad

Students of diverse sexual orientations or gender identities will find that the social climate, laws, and norms of other cultures will often differ from the U.S. If you identify as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or queer student - or if you are still exploring your identity - you may face unique challenges when traveling abroad.  

We encourage students who identify as members of the LGBTQIA community to visit the U.S. Department of State website for helpful information about laws and attitudes in this program’s locations, including pre-travel tips and advice on staying safe while abroad. You can find additional information and resources on our LGBTQIA Students page.

Gender Identity Abroad

When traveling abroad, you may find different gender roles and norms than you’re used to. It’s possible that you may be treated differently or be expected to treat others differently based on your (or their) gender identity.

You can find additional information and resources on our Gender Identity Abroad page.

Racial and Ethnic Minorities Abroad

Students of different ethnic and racial backgrounds may encounter unique challenges transitioning from life here in the United States to life as a student living abroad, including but not limited to access to personal care products and services.

You can prepare yourself for the situations you may experience by researching the ethnic composition of your host country and exploring its history of racial and ethnic relations. We encourage students to start that research on our Racial and Ethnic Minority Students page.
