Study Abroad--Three Great Opportunities!

IU at Oxford
Information Session - Friday, Jan. 22 at 3:00 pm in BUS 209
Come learn about a “ludicrously good” summer program hosted by the School of Public and Environmental Affairs on Friday, January 22 from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm in Kelley School of Business Room 209.

Participants will study governance and decision-making in public and private organizations at world renowned Oxford University’s Said Business School from July 2 – August 1, 2010. Because of the broad applicability of the course material, the program has been pre-approved for credit for all SPEA undergraduate majors and is always of interest to a variety of other majors, including students of business, political science, international studies, economics, history, English, religion, and more. . .

Course lectures will be led by Dr. Kenneth Richards, a Wharton Business School graduate who currently serves as an associate professor at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs and a senior visiting fellow at Oxford University’s Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment. Throughout the program, there will be numerous guest lectures and weekly tutorial sessions led by Oxford University faculty and graduate students.

Students will stay in a recently renovated 20-bedroom house owned by Exeter College. They will dine in college at Exeter once each week and will have a unique opportunity to sample a variety of world cuisines, including British, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Lebanese, Indian, and Italian fare.

Participants will enjoy course-related field trips to London (Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and the Churchill War Rooms); the West Country (Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge, and Bath); and Banbury (Plotting Sites for the English Civil War and the Washington ancestral home). They can also take advantage of optional Oxford field trips to the University’s colleges, the Ashmolean Museum, the Botanic Gardens, and more.
