The London
Business Semester
You may have traveled to other countries,
but have you immersed yourself in the life
and culture of another country for an
extended time?
Enliven your studies in one of the most dynamic cities in the world. There is no
better way to add an international perspective to your business degree than to
study in the city that Benjamin Disraeli described as “A nation, not a city.”

As a business student in London, you will visit sites such as the Bank of
England, the Stock Exchange, Lloyds of London, the London International
Financial Futures Exchange and international banks. Meet members of
Parliament and explore the city where 50,000 students study and live. You also
will have the opportunity to complete your community service requirement
(40 hours) while in London.
