Building successful education abroad programs starts with a comprehensive budget. Planning ahead financially makes sure a program has the funds to cover planned and unplanned costs and put appropriate safety measures into place while keeping expenses reasonable for your students. It can also facilitate the repetition of the program for future students. Budgeting can even help you put your money where your mouth is when it comes to investing in partnerships, communities, and activities that represent the values you, your students, and your organization care about.
