For 40+ years, our faculty have traveled with department students to London for three weeks in May to explore the economy, politics and culture of the British as they influence values and attitudes toward business and business practices. Day excursions to Bath, Stonehenge, Cambridge, and York provide additional exposure to this lovely country.
