Program Description:
The "From Castles to Corporations: Global Strategy in the UK" faculty-led program offers students the opportunity to study international business and strategic management across England, Scotland, and Ireland, with a focus on how institutional forces and cultural differences not only shape business practices, but also how they have a real impact on firm performance. Students will visit organizations both large and small to drive home the many lessons delivered through daily classes in the magnificent nineteenth century Harlaxton Manor, where students will live and study for the bulk of the trip. Previous organization visits have included Jaguar, Land Rover, John Deere, Nottingham Forest Football Club, Notts County Football Club, and Castle Rock Brewery, among others. Other trip highlights include long weekends in London, England – where students can see “Big Ben,” Buckingham Palace, and the London Eye – and Edinburgh, Scotland – where students can tour Edinburgh Castle, climb Arthur’s Seat, or enjoy one of Edinburgh’s noted ghost tours – as well as a multi-stop tour of Ireland, starting and finishing in Dublin’s fair city. Moreover, students will hone their professional skills through a networking event with prominent local leaders and a formal business etiquette banquet.

The physical demands of the program include city walking and hiking on uneven surfaces for several hours at a time.
