We will be taking our OSM students to China during the Spring Break of 2013, with visits to supply chain companies in Beijing and Shanghai. Students will be on the trip for 10 days from March 8 - March 18, 2013, and you can use this trip towards your degree (earn 3 credit hours). Note: You will be missing any regular classes you have scheduled on Friday, March 8, and Monday, March 18.
Yes. Graduate students can have 3 credit hours count as an MBA elective by registering for OSM 538 or OSM 625.
Undergraduate students can register for 3 credit hours in OSM 438. This course counts as an OSM major elective or a General Business major elective.
The total cost of the program is $2,650 and includes roundtrip airfare, lodging (breakfast included), excursions, tour guide, in-country transportation, China Visa fee, Center for International Services and Programs fee, and International Student ID Card fee. Students should budget an additional $350 for meals, souvenirs, and incidentals not included in the program cost. Please be advised that the cost may change slightly due to changes in transportation costs and exchange rates.
YES. Students may use spring financial aid to pay for the cost of the program. In order to apply spring financial aid toward these fees, the student must provide the Education Abroad office with a copy of their financial aid award reflecting that the student has enough spring aid to cover both their tuition costs for all courses taken in the spring term and the cost of the program. The student must also provide the Education Abroad office with their Spring course schedule. All of these documents must be submitted to the study abroad office by the December 7th payment deadline.
For more information on using financial aid, please contact Hannah Sandham, Study Abroad Specialist, at 216-687-3910 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The remainder of the program cost is broken into two payments, $1100 due on December 7 and $1350 due on January 18, 2013. You can make payments toward these charges just as you would for tuition: electronically through Campusnet, by cash/check through the Cashier’s Desk in Main Classroom, or by mail. If your total program cost is not paid by the due dates above, you may be removed from the program.
The OSM Department is offering departmental scholarships to offset the cost of the trip. The OSM Study Abroad Scholarship is worth a total $350 and will go to students who have confirmed their participation in the Spring 2013 trip to China. Preference will be given to undergraduate students who major or minor in OSM, or students who have taken at least one 400-level (600-level MBA) supply chain management course.
