DENTON (UNT), Texas -- A new dual degree program with the University of North Texas College of Business and Burgundy School of Business in France will begin for undergraduate students in 2015.

The program begins in summer 2015 for Burgundy School of Business students traveling to UNT and in fall 2015 for UNT students traveling to Burgundy. Undergraduate students enrolled in the B.B.A. in integrated studies program are eligible to apply. Students will receive separate bachelor's degrees from both schools in the amount of time it takes to earn a degree from one.

"The biggest advantage is that students with international experience are highly valued by employers," said Tracy Dietz, administrative associate dean for assessment and academic reporting in the UNT College of Business. "This experience will pay off for students when they apply for their professional positions."

The College of Business also offers scholarships for international study that can offset some of the costs associated with living and studying abroad.

"France is a highly desirable destination -- one of Europe's premier destinations -- where students will benefit from learning about European business practices and the Eurozone market," said Rick Nader, vice provost for international affairs at UNT.
