Courses and Credit
Exchange students are required to be enrolled as full-time students. Courses completed at any partner institution transfer to Ohio State as graded credits, after appropriate evaluations are made by department approvers at Ohio State. Students will select courses from the host institution's business unit's offerings prior to departure or upon arrival. Course descriptions can be found at the institutions' websites. It is strongly encouraged to meet with your academic advisor and have academic back up plans as you plan to go abroad on exchange, to be prepared for changes in course offerings at the host institution.
Admitted participants are required to successfully complete the BUSADM 3760 exchange orientation class. You also must be registered in the temporary study abroad placeholder course, BUSADM 5797 on the term you are abroad. You will be enrolled by the Office of Global Business for both courses. Specific registration instructions will be provided in the nomination letter.
Rikkyo's Online Course List: For a list of courses offered by the host institution, visit this link provided by the partner.
Rikkyo's Past Course Equivalency List: This is a list of courses that have been taken by former exchange students and shows what credit those classes have come back as to Ohio State. This is shared as a reference, as it is NOT guaranteed that these courses will be offered on the term you go abroad, nor that these courses are equivalent to Ohio State's currently offered courses. You are limited to this list of courses for direct equivalencies of business courses. You are free to take any offered course at our partner institution outside of this list, but courses not on this list will come back as a free elective course (BUSADM 5797: Study at a Foreign Institution).
Other Course Notes
