Coventry University Summer Field Trip
Founded in 1844, the University at Albany is New York State’s oldest publicly founded university. Located in New York’s capital city, it is the premier public research University in the Capital Region and offers a world of opportunity to over 17,300 students, including 1,800 international students from more than 90 countries. UAlbany’s location in the state capital of New York provides students with limitless opportunities for public service and research through which you can gain experience, test your skills, and prepare to launch brilliant careers. The excellence of a UAlbany education is recognized by many independent sources. UAlbany is ranked among the top universities in Forbes’ “America’s Best Public Colleges,” and U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks many of our graduate programs among the top 50 in the United States, including clinical psychology, criminal justice, library and information studies, public affairs, public health, sociology, and social work.
We hope that you are ready for a week of exploration and intellectual stimulation. During the 2019 Coventry Field Trip to UAlbany, you will participate in seminars and workshops conducted by faculty from our School of Business. You will join UAlbany students in solving financial problems via carefully crafted market simulations. You will also have a chance to explore upstate, New York. When you depart, you and your travel mates will be transported to New York City, where the UAlbany portion of your visit will end.
