England Bloch - Big Ben

England Bloch - Students
There are multiple walking tours, cultural visits and academic lectures at British universities. In the past we have arranged professionally guided walking tours of the Financial District in the City of London, the 2012 Olympic sites and the new business center of London, the Docklands. 
Post-Brexit London is a three credit hour program open to both undergraduates (as FIN 340 or MGT 470) or graduate students (as FIN 5552 or MGT 5552). The course meets in London from May 20-27, 2017. There will also be required meetings in advance of our travel on selected Saturday mornings in April and May, 2017.

Students will experience the changing environment of business in London after the Brexit referendum to leave the European Union including corporate strategies and public policy in reaction to this event.

Students are required to stay with the group in a nice hotel, double occupancy.
London Information
London is a great, world-class city. It is a mix of diverse cultures, a hub of finance and commerce and a center of performing arts and entertainment. British history is an important part of our own U.S. history. The British monarchy and British tradition are legendary. We strive to provide a balanced overview so students may savor the depth, breadth and richness of the unique London experience.
