Please allow me to let your students know of a new program my college has just passed for which it will be accepting its first class this summer/fall. Rollins is offering a dual degree program in
International Business with the Universität in Reutlingen. That means that in four years students can earn two bachelor's degrees -- a BA in international business from Rollins and a BS in international management from Reutlingen. Students spend the first four semesters at Rollins before transferring for their 5th through 7th semesters in Reutlingen. The capstone semester (number 8) is spent back on the Rollins campus. They undertake an international, full-time, semester-long internship in their sixth semester.
We are also negotiating with Middlebury College in Vermont to offer a 4-credit immersive intensive prematriculation option to study German at whatever level they currently fall this summer before their studies begin.
While we know that URI also offers a similar dual degree program in International Business, with a partner campus in Hamburg (alongside the world-famous engineering program, based in Braunschweig), we hope that this new opportunity may pique their curiosity, and tempt them into checking us out. For more information you can contact Rollins:
The application deadline early decision for the fall semester is January 15.
The deadline for regular decision is February 15.
