Course Description

Students intensively study a specific country or region in the world. (In this case the United Kingdom and the European Union). They evaluate the characteristics of the analyzed area’s socio-economic conditions, its policy environment, and its business activities. They then analyze how these factors jointly influence the international marketplace. Course combines lectures with overseas seminars, company/institutional visits, and cultural exposure.

Participants will visit Cambridge, London and Paris to study business development in the UK and France. You will experience life in the university city of Cambridge, with its rich traditions and stunning architecture. In London, you will explore the United Kingdom’s financial capital and seat of government Kingdom. Then you will travel by Eurostar to Paris to experience world class food, fashion, art, and historic landmarks.

The UK-France study abroad program provides the opportunity for participants to see how business is conducted in some of Europe’s most mature and integrated markets, and to consider the social, political, and economic effects of the 2020 “Brexit” that separated the UK from the European Union. Students visit a variety of international corporations as well as local businesses—some very old and others a relatively new presence in the market—to learn about business traditions and innovations in Europe.


At least one course in business or economics highly recommended.
