UK Exchange

BSB has a long tradition of welcoming international students. There is no French language requirement for this exchange, but BSB offers free French lessons to help you develop or improve your French language proficiency. BSB is an excellent fit for students interested in entrepreneurship or the wine and spirits business. They offer a School of Wine and Spirits which specializes in teaching skills around the sales and marketing of wine and spirits. BSB also offers a business incubator program called The Entrepreneurial Garden (TEG) that offers students the opportunity to work one on one with faculty, local business-people, and even local accountants and lawyers to ascertain the viability of their business plans and models. Fall is the best semester to exchange to BSB as classes are most predictable during this term. If, however, you are interested in the wine and spirits program, spring is a good term to consider. Please contact the Director of Gatton Global Initiatives, Ms Summer Eglinski for more information about the wines and spirits program.
