FSB Southeast Asia

Program Snapshot

This program exposes students to emerging markets and economies in Southeast Asia as well as the thriving city/state of Singapore. Introducing students to how business is done throughout Southeast Asia is an important part of their business education and allows students to understand the implications of the recent economic change in these economies for poverty alleviation and growing economic inequality in the region. Additionally, you will be exposed to actual cross-cultural experiences by interactions with a local “buddy” in Vietnam and in Thailand. The program offers six credit hours that will satisfy the Miami University Global Requirement.

Visa regulations are complicated, and they vary from country to country. Below are considerations as you prepare to study abroad:
  • Travel before and after a program: If you are studying in a location that requires a visa or travel permit, we advise students to avoid international travel 90 days prior to the start of the program. If you wish to add travel time before or after a program that requires a visa, we strongly recommend you consult the FSB Global Studies Office before planning your travel.
  • Applying for a passport: If you do not already have a passport, we recommend you apply for one immediately. If you are in Oxford, you can apply for a passport and purchase passport photos in 214 MacMillan Hall. 
  • Passport expiration date: Your passport must be valid for 6 months after the last date of your travel. If your passport expires within 6 months of the last day of your travel, you must apply to renew your passport immediately. If you do not comply with this regulation, you will not be permitted to enter the country. (Example: If you will be traveling from May 22 through June 16th, 2020, your passport must be valid through December 16th, 2020.)
  • Non-US passports: If you will travel with a non-US passport, please consult with the FSB Global Studies Office to learn more about the visa process. Traveling with a non-US passport may require a different process than traveling with a US passport.
