The May 2024 Business and Culture Eastern Europe program will include visits to Krakow, Poland; Budapest, Hungary; and Prague, Czech Republic, with a possible extension to Vienna Austria. The target dates for the trip are May 16 to 27, 2024.

"While traveling, students will learn about the three jewels of Eastern Europe -- Budapest, Krakow and Prague -- stand beneath fortified castles, visit the World Heritage Site of Auschwitz, and be immersed in Eastern European culture and business environments," said Wendy Wysocki, professor of business and economics and coordinator of Global Studies at MCCC. "This program will be a rewarding and enlightening learning experience to enrich participant’s personal growth and enhance professional opportunities."

MCCC students, alumni and community members who participate in a study abroad program must apply and enroll in at least one of the courses offered in the program. The course may be taken for credit or non-credit.

Those who are interested in the trip but are unable to attend one of the meetings can contact Wysocki directly at (734)384-4294 or
