Spring/Summer Programs

NOTICE
Due to the uncertainty and risks associated with the global COVID-19 pandemic, Spring and Summer term exchange and study abroad programs have been cancelled for 2020. This includes all outgoing programs at the undergraduate and MBA levels to all ASB-partnership destinations scheduled to begin between the beginning of May through the end of August.


The Alberta School of Business offers summer programs to select institutions around the globe. Internal application must be made to the Alberta School of Business for summer programs before March 1, unless otherwise noted. However, specific application procedures, deadlines and program content may vary according to the destination. Please note that some programs listed below operate outside the regular exchange framework and tuition and fees must be paid directly to the host institution. See the exchange coordinator for more information.

This page will be updated to reflect the available summer programs and current details as the information is received from our partners.
