Study Abroad

DePaul's graduate business programs prepare students to work in the global business environment.

Our international study offerings include study abroad and exchange programs for Chicago-based students as well as degree programs for students in Bahrain, which are offered in partnership with the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance.
