Program Description
The Scotland/England program puts graduate students in the midst of major global business challenges: the ongoing development of and tensions within the European Union and European Monetary Union, the opportunities and difficulties facing various business systems due to the recent financial crisis, and subsequent recovery, changes in commodity pricing (especially oil) and the continuing transitions of the business world in the region. The program brings graduate business students face-to-face with some of the managers, scholars, government experts and other key decision makers in Europe who are leading and adapting to ongoing change in that part of the business world. The program includes visits to businesses, and governmental and non-governmental organizations in the region, and attention to the cultural, political, and historic context of the region's economies. Housing is in business class hotels in city centers.

The Program Fee covers accommodations. Students will reside in double-occupancy, business-class hotel rooms in city centers, with breakfasts and most lunches provided. The program fee also includes ground transportation in each city and international medical insurance.

The program fee does NOT include airfare to/from the UK, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Edinburgh, and ends on the final program day in London. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.

International UD graduate students are welcome to apply, but will be responsible for researching and applying for the necessary visas. Also note that full-time international MBA and MS students (visa holders) pay a different tuition rate. International MBA tuition is $1,250 per credit, totaling $3,750 for this 3 cr. course. International MS tuition is $1,350 per credit, totaling $4,050 for this course.
