Business in London and Dublin
About the Program
This program begins with approximately two weeks in London, one of the world’s most important financial capitals and one of the most visited, vibrant, culturally diverse cities in the world. Summer 2018 will mark two years since the historic Brexit vote to leave the European Union, allowing students to explore the implications for local European communities and organizations.
En route to Dublin, Ireland, students will visit Edinburgh, Scotland, rich in luscious landscapes and age-old cathedrals. Over the final two weeks, Dublin will provide the backdrop for examining trends and historic events in our global economy. Students can examine the city’s continuing recovery from the 2008 recession through the lens of current economic issues and challenges in the U.S.
Students are required to enroll in 7 credit hours, but may enroll in 10 credit hours. Students are encouraged to consult their academic advisor regarding eligibility for courses, pre-reqs, etc. More information regarding courses can be found in the University Bulletin. In addition, we have listed the current CAP status for each course. However, students should consult DegreeWorks for the most accurate information since courses that satisfy CAP requirements may vary by year of admission or according to a student's major. The Degree Audit is specific to each student. Consult your academic advisor for details.

For all University of Dayton summer programs, pre-departure orientations play a critical role in making a study abroad a valuable learning experience. All students accepted to participate in University of Dayton’s summer programs are required to take the pre-departure course, UDI 220: MAXIE - Prepare (Maximizing your International Experience). This course helps students develop intercultural communication and sensitivity skills and techniques that can be used in any context, as well as learn site-specific strategies to be employed in-country. Students will be given time to clarify academic and personal goals prior to departure. UDI 220 is a required class for your education abroad experience. It is divided into two parts: the first part involves meeting as a group during the semester prior to departure (5 class meetings plus 2 sessions on concepts of culture and health and safety abroad); the second part includes meeting upon returning to campus in the semester following the in-country experience (two class meetings). The schedule for your MAXIE course is as follows:
UDI 220 - MF
Classes begin the first week of March and last until the end of April.
Once students have changed their status to “committed” in the application system, they should register for UDI 220 via Porches by searching Spring 2018, Mini-Courses (as the Department), selecting UDI 220, and finding the correct section number.
