Management

From Teatime to Technology: How the British “Rock” Business

Course Description: If you are interested in a career that takes you around the world...understanding the economic, political, social, and cultural influences is important! Rather than just learning about the terms and definitions, come to London and experience them. In this course we will take a look at some of the unique businesses in London, from Alice through the Looking Glass to Vintage Emporium and Tea Rooms to CyberDog.

We will also explore some of the hot technology companies such as Triptease, Threads, and Onefinestay. The cream in our tea will be an inside look at a global company. And, of course, we will “mix in” walking tours to London historic and cultural sites such as the Museum of London, London Bank, the Tower of London, and the London Gold Exchange. So, grab your teacup and your smart phone—and spike your hair. Let’s go to London!

Prerequisite: Introductory course in Organization and Management
