International Student Exchange




 The "Second Circle" International Model

Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) Lutgert College of Business (LCOB) has developed the "Second Circle" International Model. This program involves using a College initiated international educational partnership approach to reach out and involve an interface with the business network in the partner country. This successful concept has resulted in partnerships with the schools listed below. The basic notion is to use LCOB international academic activity to connect to a circle of business and cultural environments beyond the university in both countries.

Link to Program Presentation

Only students from these designated partner schools may apply to participate in the International Exchange program. Interested students should first contact the international exchange office (sometimes called "Outgoing Students Office") at their home institution to determine if they are eligible to participate in this program.

Exchange programs to the institutions listed below are managed by the Lutgert College of Business. FGCU students wishing to participate in one of the exchanges will find eligibility and application instructions in the first link below. The second link is to a descriptive brochure.


Most of these programs are available only to Business students, a few are open to all qualified FGCU students. The lists below show schools offering only Business programs and those offering both Business and Non-Business programs.

For additional information, contact Rosemary Meza by phone at 239-590-7301 or by e-mail.
