Spring Break in London 2019

Doctors Randy Frye and James Logue and the Shields School of Business hosted 21 students for the 13th Annual London Study Abroad trip.

The trip is part of an international themed course, entitled MGMT 307 Great Britain and the European Union in the Global Economy.  Students visited Lloyds of London, the Bank of England, Windsor Castle, St. Paul's Cathedral, Harrods, the Wimbledon Tennis Club, and Millwall Football Club (“The Den”). They also took a guided title="Study Abroad in London" class="fancy" />walking tour of the Financial District in London with a noted London author and guide, and a day later followed the bloody path of Jack the Ripper.

"I learned more about Brexit and how it will impact the European Union and Britain, said Rebecca Kasun, Accounting major at the Shields School of Business. "I also was made aware of how important London is as a main financial city in the world." 

Additionally, the group toured St. Mary’s University, located in Twickenham, England and heard a lecture by Dr. Peter Hill, a professor of public policy and political science, entitled The Implications of Brexit in 2019.  The group also attended a lecture at the Bank of England on British monetary policy.  The London program examines international economics and global finance, as well as British politics, industry, and culture.

The trip would not be possible without the assistance of the Saint Francis University Study Aboard Office, led by Mrs. Julie Horvath, and without generous financial support from the Dr. Albert A. Zanazuccki Endowed Chair in Business Administration program. The London Spring Short-term Study Abroad Program is the longest continuous running program of its kind at Saint Francis University. 

Students participating on the trip included Kenneth Brumbaugh, Joseph Dombrowski, Amber Elliot, Randall Frye, Maria Del Mar Garcia, Kristen Hile, Rebecca Kasun, Anne Marie Larkin, Mingrui Li, Marcus Mihelcic, Emily Pollack, Taylor Ponchione, Lindsay Scala, Tabor Schilling, Jillian Scott, Tara Shaffer, Sumer Slebodnick, Renee Surma, Victoria Surma, Jessica Woods, and Aaron Yasulitis.
