Picture of Caitlyn Bertone in Paris, FranceWhy Participate in a Short Term Exchange?

Students who are not able to spend a full term abroad can still receive many of the same benefits as a full term exchange but in a shorter amount of time such as experiencing a new culture, taking courses with a unique focus and expanding their global network.

Depending on the partner school, students will spend anywhere between two weeks to two months on exchange and register in the equivalent of 3-6 Schulich credits.

Elizabeth Owens Skidmore, MBA

“I loved this program, CBS, Copenhagen, and Denmark as a whole an extraordinary amount. The six weeks I spent at CBS were transformational for me. The friends I made, the people I met in class, the professors I had, and the glorious Danish sunshine we experienced made for a summer I will never forget. I would highly recommend this program to anyone and hope that you will have as great of a time as I did!”

Elizabeth Owens Skidmore, MBA
