Study Abroad in Europe

Study Abroad in Europe

Clemson University has updated its travel suspension for Spring 2021 programs. Please visit the Travel Warnings page for details and make sure that you are regularly checking Clemson University's COVID-19 website for important university-wide updates.

Spring Break in Europe: Rome

The main objective of the international investment course is to introduce students to investments and to teach them how to create a well-diversified investment portfolio, which should include diversification into international stocks. When considering international stocks to buy for their portfolios, students need to consider the state of the economy of that country and the policies that they have in place. Understanding the culture, customs, and etiquette also gives a perspective on how the Italian markets can react in different states of economy.

During the visit to Rome, students will meet with management teams of Italian corporations and will learn, firsthand, how business policies and Italian government laws impact the organization's operations, and ultimately the stock price.
