Studying abroad presents students with the opportunity to acquire and develop a diverse range of employability and life skills. Exposure to diverse cultures introduces you to innovative ideas and ways of thinking that you might not have thought of otherwise. International travel is extremely beneficial to those working in the construction industry as they can study foreign business practices, architectural styles, and intercultural communication. While Cal Poly has had a successful summer study abroad program in the past, the faculty leaders are looking for student feedback to help better structure the program and in turn hopefully increase enrollment. This project is designed to gauge interest from the Cal Poly Construction Management student body of a summer program in Prague. Students were sent a survey that asked them to answer 6 questions regarding the future program. Five multiple choice and one free response question. The design of this survey aimed to provide both quantitative and qualitative data which could be used to inform the faculty leaders of student interest and suggestions in a construction management study abroad program. Survey results confirmed student interest in the summer program as well as the desired courses, delivery method, and duration.
