Program Description

Study abroad in London, England during Spring Break 2019! Here is a great opportunity to experience one of the world's greatest cosmopolitan, cultural and financial capitals! Apply Now!

As part of MAN 2604 Intercultural Relations to Business, students will travel to England to gain a deeper knowledge about British culture and local business mechanisms and practices. This study abroad program will be a life-changing experience and expose students to a whole new and diverse culture through pre-trip seminars, visits to cultural sites, tours of local and international businesses, lectures at Burton and South Derbyshire College, and a post-trip wrap-up.

After returning, students will have a strong understanding of the English culture and business model. A broader knowledge of international business and culture allows students to differentiate themselves from other job applicants and makes them significantly more marketable and attractive to potential employers.

Academic features of the trip include:

Learning in Birmingham
A visit to Burton and South Derbyshire College, where students will experience a British classroom setting and have the opportunity to interact with students and faculty and learn about business mechanisms and practices in the U.K.

A tour of historical sites, including the Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace.
