March 12-20, 2022

Live volcanoes, national parks, tropical weather, and beautiful people are the backdrop for business in action. Working with the University for Peace, we will look at accounting and hospitality and tourism management in relation to the banking system, economy, markets, farmers, agribusiness, sustainability, and their ecosystems. Students will also have the opportunity to enjoy rafting, visiting a volcano, coffee plantations, NGO’s, a chocolate company, and a free day to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Puerto Viejo. Join us!
*Spears Business is requiring all students traveling on a CAGLE Study Abroad program in 2022 be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
