New Opportunity to Study Consumer Behavior in Russia!

This program consists of an 8-week course (3 credits) in Consumer Behavior (BUSN 328), which will be taught on campus, followed by a 2-week immersion experience in Russia. The program is led by Dr. Nadia Novotorova of Augustana's Business Administration Department.

This program is a BRAND NEW opportunity for Augustana students!


Students in the program will study at Augustana during the Spring Term of 2014. The BUSN 328 will ONLY MEET FOR 8 WEEKS OF THE TERM. Following completion of Spring Term, students will travel for two weeks to Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod (5th largest city in Russia, located a few hours to the southeast of the capital along the Volga River), where they will be guests of the Nizhny Novgorod Institute of Management and Business. Exact dates of the Russian component are still TBD, but tentatively it is scheduled for the end of May and beginning of June. 


This program is OPEN TO ALL MAJORS, but priority is given to Business Administration majors. Grades for the course will be completed in the summer following the trip. Seniors need to be aware that due to the summer component of this program, they will officially graduate in August of 2014. 


The cost of the trip is still tentative due to the newness of the program and future travel costs, but it is approximately $3950. The program fee will include roundtrip airfare between Chicago and Moscow, ground transportation, majority of meals, housing costs, excursion fees, site visits, museum entry fees, and health insurance. This program DOES NOT cover discretionary spending and some meals.

This program qualifies for Augie Choice funds. Take advantage of this amazing opportunity that Augustana offers if you have not already!
