Summer Study Abroad Programs

Craig International programs take Fresno State students to a few great locations every summer and offer Fresno State classes. The classes offered during the summer study abroad program are core business courses taught by our own faculty. This means you won’t have to go through the hassle of getting credits transferred back to Fresno State.

Our Summer abroad program has become extremely popular in recent years and it is not difficult to understand why. Students get to complete part of their required coursework in desirable foreign locations, gaining great cultural experiences. The combination of first-hand cultural experience, company visits, and required coursework at a reasonable price makes the Summer Study Abroad program a great option for a wide variety of Craig students!
