NORTH DARTMOUTH – The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Charlton College of Business has renewed its exchange agreement with Ostfalia University, which works closely with the Volkswagen Group.
Both the university and Volkwagen’s world headquarters are located in Wolfsburg, Germany.
Under this new agreement, Charlton College students will continue to participate in the college’s popular intensive Global Marketing: A European Union Perspective course held in the spring, including a two-week immersion program, newly developed full-semester or one-year study-abroad program in Wolfsburg.
The new program offers UMass Dartmouth students the opportunity to study at Ostfalia for a full semester, taking equivalent courses in English while German students will attend UMass Dartmouth for a semester or full academic year. The tuition arrangement typically called “study at foreign institution and pay at home institution” makes it affordable for students.
Since 2006, 105 UMass Dartmouth students have participated in the two-week International Summer University (ISU) program in Wolfsburg, and five Ostfalia students have studied at UMass Dartmouth. •
