Frequently Asked Questions

Am I required to take business courses?

Most FSB study abroad programs require business courses. The specific course requirements depend on the program. All winter and summer programs only offer business courses. Semester terms vary; visit specific program websites to view course information.

Which program is the best fit for non-business majors?

This depends! If you have a business minor or a major that requires certain business courses, we can work with you to determine the best-fit program. You should schedule an appointment with Emily Akil, Assistant Director of Global Business Programs through Navigate under "FSB - Global Programs - 1038” to discuss course options and availability.

Can I use my Miami scholarships on FSB programs?

Yes! All FSB programs are Miami programs, meaning your financial aid is applied to tuition and fees the same way it is during the academic year. Most financial aid and scholarships are specific to semester programs; keep this in mind when planning for study abroad.

Are non-business students eligible for FSB scholarships?

The majority of FSB scholarships are only available to business majors. There are scholarship opportunities outside of the FSB and limited funding may be available for non-business majors for certain programs.
