JWU faculty members are the academic leadership for this program. They coordinate pre-departure information, travel with the group, deliver academic content in conjunction with host faculty, and assign the final grade for the program course.

The faculty leaders will schedule pre-departure meetings to discuss the detailed program itinerary with the selected group and outline any pre-departure assignments.

Learning on study abroad programs occurs both inside and outside of the classroom. During the program, you should expect to be in program-related activities 50-60 hours per week. Activities include traditional classroom lectures, industry visits, cultural excursions, and group meals. You are required to participate in the full program itinerary and group activities.
