Program Details

The UK is an excellent experience for students for a range of reasons. As the seat of the industrial revolution, England provides a 'hands on' experience of the historical landscape which takes students from the roots of the modern industrial economy to the present day. The recent turmoil in the UK which has arisen due to Brexit results in an ideal situation and context for the study of how democracy, politics, and business interact on the global stage. These among other reasons will provide a great learning environment for students.
