Oxford, England: Comparative Strategic Management

Program information

For the past 35 years, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business has partnered with Oxford University to enable select undergraduate business students to further their global awareness and international experience with summer study in the United Kingdom. Conducted over six weeks, the Comparative Strategic Management Program compares business functions in Great Britain, Western Europe, and the United States. The program is designed for mature undergraduate students in business administration who have completed at least 60 credits and who are motivated to enrich their academic and personal lives with the experience of living and learning in a foreign setting.

During their stay, all students live on the campus of historic Trinity College only a few yards from the Bodleian Library and Radcliffe Camera. Enjoying close interaction with British instructors and tutors, students benefit from Oxford’s traditional teaching methods in lectures, seminars, and tutorials.

Students also make frequent visits to leading British firms to experience global business and intercultural exchange firsthand.
