  • Term Dates

    Autumn Semester: Aug- Dec

    Spring Semester: Jan- May

    Other Notes:

    • To avoid delaying graduation, students should not apply to participate in the exchange program in their graduating semester. Foreign transcripts take longer to process into OSU systems.
    • By selecting Spring term exchange, students agree to commit to the full spring term at our partners.
  • Past Offered Courses
    • WHU's Online Course List
      A selected list of courses are offered in English, but you may take courses in the local language if you are comfortable to do so. Local language proficiency is recommended but not required.
    • WHU's Past Course Equivalency List
      The above past course equivalency list provided by the Office of Global Business is a list of course equivalencies that have been approved in the past and this data is shared as a reference. 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 University's currently offered courses. You are limited to this list of courses for direct equivalency. You are free to take courses offered 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).


    • Course selections may require you to take two courses at WHU for one course at OSU, due to the different class contact hours required by WHU and OSU.
