Recognized for hundreds of years as a global business hub, London is one of the world's most dynamic cities. With the reality of Brexit, London's future as a hub is thrown into question. Join the Huntsman School on a spring break program in a city where tradition, modernity, and the future collide to create a distinctive business environment.
The London program provided amazing opportunities for networking, learning about global business, and exposure to culture.Skyler Bowthorpe
