  Program Description   Faculty Leaders
 Learn about the business of sports while visiting Ireland. This program is designed to enhance student's  understanding of how culture, history, and politics influence the business of sports in Ireland. In addition to  the focus on the business of sports, students will tour the city of Dublin and see the Irish countryside. In  particular, students will learn about popular Irish and European sports, such as Gaelic football, hurling,        rugby, and soccer, watch a rugby match and learn how professional sports teams are managed.  Students will  also study the business of horse racing and breeding racehorses, and attend a day at the races. And of course,  students will discover the different models of golf club ownership and play nine holes on one of the most  famous links courses in western Ireland.

 CBA 315 Global Business Study Tour is a three-credit fall 2018, undergraduate global business elective      course. This course can count as a business elective, business of sports minor elective, international business   elective, or free elective.  
 Students travel during the summer and complete the course the following fall '18 semester.  Students will be registered for the CBA 315 after they are accepted to the program.
