Develop a deep appreciation of the social and economic challenges associated with rapid economic growth and urbanization in China through study and experience.  Taiwan native and Economics department chair Dr. Albert Loh, along with Psychology professor Dr. Susan Perez leads this journey to understand how the regional imbalance of economic opportunities has incentivized a massive migration of workforce from the rural areas in inland provinces to the coastal urban areas, and its enormous impact on the rural communities. Interview long-time residents in Beijing to learn about the changes in the city and the transition they had to go through during the recent decades, and meet with local college students at Beijing International Studies University to discuss the trade-off between economic advancement, urbanization, and associated problems. Spend a day in the rural township Baihua, and visit to its only elementary school.  Meet the school principal and many left-behind children and listen to the challenges they are going through in their lives.  And of course, visit the Great Wall of China and the Giant Panda Breeding Center

ECO4956 Turkey: Economics of Emerging Markets


 Istanbul Bridge

Copyrights of this image belong to Istanbul Provincial Directorate of Culture and Tourism


Interested in visiting a unique city while learning about the economics of foreign investment? If so, join us in Istanbul!  As an emerging market economy positioned at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, Turkey represents a valuable case study and offers many important lessons in economic development and policy making. With its key location bridging West to East, modern infrastructure and well-educated talent pool, the city of Istanbul offers unique opportunities for multinational companies. Students participating in this program will engage with senior executives who will share their experience with working in a volatile but fast-growing economy, and they will discuss the differences between investing in emerging markets versus more developed economies. In addition, Istanbul is a cosmopolitan city with a very long history. Students will take part in cultural visits that capture the Greek, Roman and Ottoman influences - from the glittering gold mosaics of the Hagia Sophia, to the cascading domes of the Blue Mosque, and from the cavernous depths of the Basilica Cistern to the Topkapı Palace’s mysterious harem. Take off for Istanbul with UNF Economics professors, Dr. Nilufer Ozdemir (native of Turkey) and Dr. Russell Triplett this spring!

Faculty-Led Payment Process

About the Student Cost 

Each faculty-led study abroad has costs associated with the products and services that are part of the program, including student lodging, airfare, business/cultural visits, entry fees, international health insurance, t-shirts, etc. In order to ensure the best rates (and thus the lowest cost for students!) faculty leaders must sometimes pay airfare or hotel deposits up to nine months in advance of travel. However, we try to spread the student payments over two semesters so that the entire program fee is not due at the time of application. This allows students to begin saving and researching other sources of funding prior to making these payments.

 

Payment Timeline 

Once your complete application has been submitted via myWings, and you have completed your interview (if required) and been approved, you are considered a participant in your chosen program. The first study abroad charge of $500 will be posted to your account within a couple of days with a due date of December 6. If payment is not received by the due date, it becomes a financial hold. The second study abroad charge of $1000 will be posted to your account in Mid-January, with a due date of February 7. In late-February, the remainder of your program fee (program cost minus $1500) will be posted to your account with a due date of March 6 for March travel or April 3 for May travel

 

First Payment

  • $500 charge posted upon acceptance
  • Due December 6

Second Payment

  • $1000 charge posted in mid-January
  • Due February 7

Third Payment 

  • Remaining balance (program cost minus $1500) charge posted in late February
  • Due March 6 for March travel or April 3 for May travel

Both charges above are nonrefundable and may be paid via myWings or at UNF Student Financial Services in Hicks Hall. For additional payment or withdrawal information, refer to the Faculty-Led Study Abroad Policies.
