Program Overview This program is highly competitive and will accept only a limited number of applicants. Interview appointments and acceptance decisions are at the discretion of the faculty director.

Study Accounting and Finance in Ireland and the United Kingdom, two locations that are undergoing an economic transformation due to the decision of Britain to exit the European Union. Students will enjoy the cultural aspects of each country.

Based in Dublin and London, you’ll interact with local universities as you study the economic effects of Brexit. In addition, you’ll learn about international business through visits to local companies. This winter session program will also take a variety of cultural excursions including visits to the House of Parliament, Giants Causeway, Cliffs of Moher and more.

Whether you’re interested in seeing Big Ben or the Coast of Ireland, the winter session in Dublin and London is your chance to experience, taste and learn about each culture while gaining an education regarding the economic impact of Brexit.

The Program Fee includes accommodations in double rooms in a hotel/hostel/dorm with full English breakfast in London, group excursions, cultural events, a London tube pass for zones 1-2, medical insurance and a farewell meal.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to Dublin and from London and airport transfers in the United States. The program officially begins when students arrive in Dublin. 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.
