UI offers international business study abroad program in London
University of Iowa students can learn about international business firsthand
by means of a winter study abroad program in London, England, set for Dec.
27, 2002 to Jan. 12, 2003.
Offered by the Henry B. Tippie College of Business, the College of Engineering,
and the Office for Study Abroad, this class will highlight the differences
between international and domestic businesses. The London course offers students
an opportunity to develop a firsthand understanding of the effects of infrastructure
on international commerce and business practices by means of lectures, case
studies, and site visits.
The course will be co-taught by Lon Moeller, clinical associate professor
of management and organizations, and Wilfrid Nixon, professor of civil and
environmental engineering. The course carries credit in both the Tippie College
and the College of engineering.
The deadline for submission of applications is Oct. 1. For costs and a detailed
program description see http://www.biz.uiowa.edu/upo/opportunities/london.html.
