The Dutch have always played an important role in international business. Our university is named after the Hanseatic League, a medieval alliance of cities in North Western Europe, to which many Dutch cities belonged. The aim of the Hanseatic League was to boost prosperity and welfare by facilitating trade between its member cities. The important role of the Netherlands in international business is further illustrated by the fact that the first modern multinational was Dutch (the Dutch East India Company) and that we are one of the founding members of the European Union, the largest market in the world.
Various Hanze UAS schools with a focus on business have joined forces to develop the programme "Doing Business in Europe." This first-class Summer School takes you on a journey through the European world of business. In order to provide the broadest of information, the programme covers general and specialized subjects, covering the full range of international business topics. The classes are combined with extensive social activities and business trips to multinationals.
Students will enroll in the Doing Business in Europe course through Hanze University of Applied Sciences. This 3 credit hour course (6 ECTS) will transfer to USC Upstate as MKTG U452 - International Marketing.

Early planning and application is very important in preparation for going abroad. Students may start their application for studying abroad at any time. However, submitted applications will be reviewed only during the application cycle of the respective program. Passport information is not required to start your study abroad application; although a valid passport is required to take part in any international program.
To begin your application, click the APPLY NOW tab, and you will be prompted to login in using your USC Upstate username and password.
There are two phases in the USC Upstate study abroad application: pre-decision and post-decision. Students who complete the first half of the application will then be asked to confirm or withdraw their application. Students who confirm their participation will then have access to the post-decision portion of the application. All application requirements in both phases of the application must be completed in order for an applicant to participate in a study abroad program.
Before paying the non-refundable application fee and deposit, applicants are encouraged to first complete all other components of the pre-decision application.
