The TransAtlantic Business School Alliance (TABSA) unites four European and four U.S. universities that are working to share cultural and educational experiences with students across geographic boundaries. The alliance’s purpose is to offer students who wish to become international business leaders of the 21st century a truly international education.

The programme is competitive with limited enrolment. After completing two intensive years at their home business school, students study abroad from a select group of partner institutions for two years. Each student completes at least one internship and has the opportunity to earn a degree from both institutions. The programme is designed to foster participants' fluency in another language-English, French, German or Spanish.

Students selected for participation in the TABSA scholar programme incur no additional tuition costs beyond those paid at their home institution. Travel and modest incidental fees are the only additional charges that students must bear beyond their normal living expenses.

The European universities that are members of this alliance are Euromed Management (Kedge Business School) in Marseille France; Hochschule Bremen in Bremen, Germany; the Universitat de València in Valencia, Spain; and the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield, UK. The U.S. members are the University of North Florida, Jacksonville, the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, and Hofstra University, Frank G. Zarb School of Business, Hempstead, New York.
