BAEM Advising Guide
Experience with other cultures and countries can count as part of your degree requirements for the BAEM. Or you may be interested in an international internship that pays you to work in another country. There are many opportunities to broaden your horizons and below is some information to get you started.
The main resource at the University is the U of M Learning Abroad Center, which keeps lists of international courses that can be directly used for technical or liberal education credit. See their AEM Program Study Abroad Major Advising page for details on courses that can be used for technical credit. The Students page has information on how to get started finding a program that is right for you. CSE has support for study abroad and has a Global Seminars Page for short courses that take you abroad.
