Study Abroad and Take CM Courses While There!

There are many ways to have a study abroad experience as an UMass Boston student. Studying abroad is a great way to learn about other cultures while living in another country. The Study Abroad website includes instructions and information for students who wish to study abroad for a semester, summer or an academic year. Please check out their FAQs.

Do not miss out on the following:

  • Attend the Study Abroad 101 Information Session on April 1, 2015, 2pm-4 pm in the Campus Center, Room 2450.

Once you have been approved to go abroad, you will receive a “Prior Approval of Transfer Credit of Study Abroad Programs Form Study Abroad” form given by the Study Abroad office. This form is used to indicate the courses you plan to take abroad. If you intend to take College of Management courses, you will need to obtain a syllabus for each course and submit them to the College of Management Front Desk in M-5-610 for review to determine if the courses are equivalent. We only review College of Management courses. Any other courses you wish to take must be reviewed by that department. The review process can take two to three weeks so please plan accordingly.

After your courses are reviewed and equivalencies are determined, you will need to make an appointment with your academic advisor before you leave. This is to ensure upon your return, you will remain on track towards completing your degree.

How does a Young Entrepreneur and a Small Company Change the UK Trading Exchange?

Tony Weeresinghe
Chairman and CEO
USTOCKTRADE LLC

Wednesday, April 1
4-5:30pm
Campus Center, third floor, room 3540

Tony aims to share how millennials have the opportunity to take on the big firms with innovation and wealth creation through the connected economy. He will share his experience with FinTech innovation and its role in changing how people, especially millennials, manage their personal finances and engage with the stock market. He will convey his opinions by sharing how Millennium IT, a small FinTech company in Sri Lanka, built the fastest trading system in the world and helped the London Stock Exchange Group, operator of Europe’s oldest independent bourse, move to be the 3rd largest global exchange in three short years, and why he chose to move from LSE to build Ustocktrade. The goal is to share how FinTech innovation has the ability to change and is changing the landscape of the traditional finance sector.

CAMPUS CLOSED MONDAY, MARCH 30

On March 30, the dedication of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate will bring a national spotlight to our university. President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden will be among the dignitaries attending, requiring us to close the campus as the Secret Service implements its security measures. This communication is intended to help clarify what it will mean for UMass Boston to be closed for this event.

Normal campus operations will be conducted during the weekend before the dedication. However, the campus will close at 7pm on Sunday, March 29.  It will remain closed through the day on Monday, March 30.   No one without prior security clearance will be allowed on campus during the closure period.  The campus will reopen on Tuesday, March 31 at 7am, when normal operations will resume.

The closure will be unlike those for weather events or holidays. Instead, there will be very strict limits on who may enter the campus. This restriction is required by external law-enforcement officials, who will be working with our own Department of Public Safety officers to sweep and secure the campus.

Specific Issues:

Access to Campus Parking Lots, Outdoor Spaces, and Buildings
There will be no access to campus locations, with very few exceptions for selected critical employees who have been required to submit background-check forms. All access points will be guarded by multiple levels of law enforcement. Portions of the Harbor Walk will be closed.

Parking
On Sunday night, there will be no overnight parking in any campus parking lot, including the Bayside lot, or in the Campus Center garage. On Monday, March 30, any cars not registered to approved staff will be towed from campus lots.

Buses
There will be no shuttle bus service from the MBTA or the Bayside lot to the campus on March 30. MBTA buses #8 and #16 also will not be coming to the campus during that day.

Building Sweeps
Campus buildings will be swept and secured.

Off-campus Operations
Operations will continue as scheduled at off-campus locations such as the Nantucket Field Station, the School for Global Inclusion and Social Development’s downtown office, The Early Learning Center and CAPS off-campus facilities at 150 Mt. Vernon Street and elsewhere.  Online courses will also continue as scheduled.

Spreading the Word
If you are aware of anyone who might wish to visit the campus on March 30, please inform that person that there will be no access to the campus.

Questions?
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Customer Service at 617.287.4000 or customer.service@umb.edu.

The College of Management Writing Assessment (CMWA) is the placement exam used to place students in either BC 230 or BC 290. If you have completed 30 credits or more and finished ENGL 102, you should take the CMWA now! The CMWA will be available throughout the next few months to help student place into BC 230 and BC 290 before Summer and Fall classes begin, but the earlier you take the CMWA, the sooner you will be able to enroll in BC 230 or BC 290.
