Montevideo, Uruguay

Spend Summer A studying logistics and South American business practices in Montevideo, Uruguay! Universidad de Montevideo (UM) is a private university that is known for having some of the best professors and students in Uruguay. This summer program includes UM's Global Supply Program that attracts students from around the world, plus an extra week of business culture experience for UNF students. Gain a deeper appreciation of South American culture by attending a celebratory welcome lunch, guided city tour, and an excursion to Colonia del Sacramento, a UNESCO world heritage site. Check out the program video to learn more. 

Note: Since this program is just over two weeks, it cannot fulfill the International Business major international experience requirement on its own.

Three weeks not enough? Consider continuing your study abroad in South America for summer B in Rosario, Argentina! Non-business majors that participate in both Uruguay and Argentina can automatically obtain the International Business minor for non-business majors! For more information, contact us or visit us in Building 42, Room 1104.
