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. For more information, contact Kimberly Williams in the Tippie College's Undergraduate Program Office at 335-1037, John Rogers in the Office for Study Abroad at 335-0353, or Nixon at 335-5166.
