Program Snapshot

Visit exotic Costa Rica, where the emphasis is on environmental sustainability, conservation and economic development.  Costa Rica contains many diverse ecosystems all within a small area.  Understanding the ecology is as important as an understanding of the business aspects for successful sustainable development, this program fully integrates the two disciplines.  The focus of this program is experiential learning, so we will travel extensively.  We will also do a study-tour in Nicaragua focusing on economic and cultural comparatives in relation to Costa Rica.
