Business & Social Entrepreneurship

SAA’s business programs prepare students to work in the global business environment and offers them the chance to see growing and successful businesses at work in cities that are some of the largest financial centers in the world.

Students have the chance to visit industry leaders such as Amazon and BMW to see firsthand how they were able to grow and find success. In addition, we visit innovative startups and co-working spaces to see the challenges that emerging companies face to rival those industry giants.

Tours through financial districts and stock exchanges show students what its like to work day-to-day in the fast-paced and ever-changing global marketplace.

Lessons are given on historical and modern day business and banking practices, and students receive unique insights by studying the financial industries of another country, where business regulations, laws, and management are different than the US.
