IN492 International Trade Practicum in Panama



With five percent of the world’s trade crossing its path, the Panama Canal is one of the world’s largest engineering wonders. While staying in Panama City, we will cross a portion of the canal by ship, before the widening of the canal starts to accept larger container ships. In this field trip we will learn about Panama’s fashion, textile, music, culture, and eco-tourism industries. Trip fee is $3,300 plus 3 credits tuition. Fee in-cludes: Airfare, Double Room, Daily Continental Breakfast, and Sight-seeing Tours.
