This paper describes a short-term, accounting-related study abroad program (STASA). Unlike traditional study abroad programs whose primary objective is to expose students to international environs and cultures, the described STASA also helps address the demands of accounting students’ future employers and accreditors by helping develop students' transnational teaming skills and meaningfully integrating international accounting curricula. We do this by having US-based students work both remotely and co-located with students from another country to complete an international accounting-related project. A detailed description of the STASA is provided that includes design considerations, learning objectives, implementation guidance, and possible grading options. Also included are answers to frequently asked questions about course execution, partnering with an international university, and funding.
