During the conference, the consortium finalized dual degree program curricula, discussed joint academic projects, planned an international logo challenge for students, gave presentations to Coggin college students, toured UNF’s campus and the city of Jacksonville, and more. 

The European universities also met with first and second-year UNF students planning to study as exchange or dual-degree students at their universities, and with their own students currently studying and earning degrees at UNF. 

The event was highlighted with a dinner hosted by Coggin College of Business Dean Richard Buttimer. He was joined by members of the International Business (IB) Advisory Council, friends of IB, faculty, and dual-degree program alumni. Jacksonville Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President and IB alumna, Mónica Hernández, gave remarks during the dinner.

The TABSA universities include: Kedge Business School, France; Hochschule Bremen, Germany; Universitat de València, Spain; University of Hertfordshire, United Kingdom; University of North Carolina-Wilmington; Hofstra University, New York; Weber State University, Utah; and the University of North Florida.
