About

Over 10 days, you will travel to Europe to explore the streets of London, United Kingdom and the beautiful city, Paris, France. This program will provide you with an incredible opportunity to discover international business practices, especially as they pertain to the European business environment. You will gain valuable knowledge of the culture, societal and political environments of one of the world's largest business industries. If you intend to pursue a career in international business, or a related field, this program will allow you to obtain real world experience of operating with and considering international business practices. 

Alongside taking in the important cultural and historical sites in London and Paris, you will visit companies that are business powerhouses in a variety of industries and fields, such as Lockheed Martin, 3M, Schneider Electric and Lloyd's of London. These visits give you important intangible benefits that you just can't pick up back home, on campus or even in a traditional study abroad programs where you simply attend English lectures at foreign universities. These visits will consist of presentations from executives in upper-management positions, networking opportunities to learn from and gain advice from these individuals, and facility tours of select organizations. 

All in all, students will immerse themselves in the rich and diverse European culture, exploring its cities and indulging in delectable European cuisine while staying in four-star hotels. This experience is meant to be the first international business experience of your career, helping you learn and earn priceless lessons you aren't able to capture otherwise!

The highlights of this program include our Classic City Tour of Paris, a visit to 3M, Schneider Electric, Lockheed Martin factory, a trip to Wimbledon Tennis Championships, a speaker from Lloyd's of London, and a City Tour of London. 

The Guaranteed Airfare Deadline is November 15, 2015. After this date, all airfare purchases will be subject to retail prices.
