A Message from the Resident Director

   Preparing yourself for success in the 21st century means preparing yourself to thrive in the global community. International no longer means "abroad," it can mean literally right next door. Many foreign firms now operate in the United States. U.S. firms have operations all over the world, and there has been a recent explosion of U.S. activity and investments in the German-speaking countries of the former Eastern Block.

   Your participation in UNO's Academic Year Abroad at the University of Innsbruck is an investment that will pay dividends for a life time. AYA is designed to help you acquire the cultural savvy so important in the international community. At the same time, it is intended to give you new insights into yourself and a new understanding and appreciation for what it means to be American. It is an opportunity for you to collect intellectual frequent flyer miles you can cash in for the rest of your life. Let Innsbruck - the "Bridge over the River Inn" - be a bridge to your future. I look forward to accompanying you on your way there.

I welcome your questions and am available for consultation anytime by email!
