Information

United Kingdom: Business in the U.K. Post-Brexit
londonThis course incorporates a study abroad program with an emphasis on examining the effects of Brexit on U.K. based multinational businesses (MNEs). Students will visit a foreign country (The United Kingdom, in the case) to obtain first-hand experience in communicating with local business professionals, business school students, and other constituencies. Another purpose of this course is geared towards allowing students who are interested in growing a career in international business to explore foreign economic, social, and cultural environments via company tours, campus visits, and cultural immersion activities. Students will spend approximately 10 days abroad and complete the required coursework during and after the trip. This study abroad course also provides an opportunity for students who are interested in doing extended study abroad programs to assess whether a foreign environment would be something they can commit.
