Gaining in-depth understanding of British finance

During the course of the six-week program, students will explore the nature and workings of financial markets and institutions set in the context of British politics and economics, and learn about the British entrepreneurial eco-system.
Students also go through structured, intensive English language training. Classes are taught by professors from England’s prestigious Cambridge and Oxford universities, by professionals from Britain's major financial institutions, and by British experts in finance, politics, and entrepreneurship.

In addition to gaining an understanding of financial markets and improving students’ professional English, the Summer School program aims to prepare students for their job search in London’s financial community. Workshops devoted to British-style CV’s, English language presentations, and personal branding will provide students with the skills, confidence, and competitive advantage they need to get a job in London.
