Join us for an info session about the Spring 2024 Short-Term Abroad Program (STAP) on business and cultural exploration in the Middle East (ARAB 2105-10) with Prof. Mohssen Esseesy. 


This course, led by Prof. Mohssen Esseesy, has the twin aim of Arabic language and cultural immersion. Students will develop their Arabic language and culture proficiency at the advanced level and for business purposes. They will be engaged in simulated “real life” business tasks and authentic tasks in Oman. Such tasks require multidimensional problem-solving skills and competency in Arab culture. They also require the ability to evaluate and weight competing factors, consideration of options, and presenting a defensible, creative solution to business problems. This is a one-of-a-kind language immersion opportunity for students to explore business-in-action within an emerging Middle Eastern economy. Read more about past student experiences.


An additional requirement for this course is that students must be at the Advanced Level of Arabic proficiency as measured by the ACTFL Guidelines, or have taken or is concurrently taking Business Arabic (ARAB 3311) in spring 2024. For any questions, please email Prof. Esseesy at
