Program Description:

Spend your summer studying in beautiful Italy!  The summer study abroad program is sponsored by the Consortium of Universities for International Studies (CIMBA) in which Iowa State University has membership.  The CIMBA program is administered by the University of Iowa.  

One course is being offered in Summer 2016 from Monday, May 16 - Thursday, May 26.  The course is entitled, " Topics in Management Sciences: Lean Six Sigma"
Students earn three MBA elective credits for the course.   

 Academic credit appears on a University of Iowa graduate transcript easily transferable to the Iowa State MBA.  Final grades of "B or better"  are required for transfer credit.     

The campus in Asolo, Italy is located in the foothills of the Dolomite Mountains, just 45 miles north of Venice. Characterized by winding, cobblestone streets, lush gardens, rolling hills, and expansive villas, Asolo was once the summer location of choice for Venetian nobility. The facility – a historic monastery  dating to the14th century – has been modernized providing well-equipped classrooms, a computer lab, bedrooms with private baths, and numerous amenities.

Travel days are built into the schedule to allow students to expand their cultural experience and maximize opportunities for personal growth. Convenient rail connections allow visits within Italy and to France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and many European countries.
