Fordham in London: Gabelli School of Business

Locations: London, United Kingdom; Rome, Italy

“Studying abroad was an experience I will keep with me for the rest of my life. Not only was I able to make new friends I never would have imagined meeting, I was able to travel the world and experience various cultures.”
— Rachael Congialdi, Spring 2016

Few locations in Europe rival London as a place to study world business. The Gabelli School allows you to complete your Fordham coursework in this European commercial center. Students may visit the headquarters of Jaguar and Barclays Bank, hold an internship at a London office of a Big Four accounting firm, or undertake a global study of social entrepreneurship.

Program Details

Location

Fordham’s London Centre is located at Heythrop College, part of the University of London, where students will meet British and foreign students studying a variety of subjects. Students may choose to eat on campus, where a cafeteria serves three meals a day at reasonable prices, or off campus in nearby Kensington Square, which is well known for its cafés, restaurants, and shops. The square was once home to the great philosopher John Stuart Mill; the Pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burne-Jones; and the great actress and creator of Eliza Doolittle, Mrs. Patrick Campbell.

The United Kingdom—England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland—is a diverse place full of contrasts, featuring a wide range of landscapes and cultures. London, the largest city in Europe, is a bustling cosmopolitan center of astonishing variety and interest that a visitor could explore for months without turning over every stone. The other regions of the U.K. are fascinating for their own reasons, each with a unique personality and history.

While based at Fordham’s London Centre, students may choose to venture from Cornwall in the far west to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland in the north. Cities such as Edinburgh, York, Durham, Chester, and Canterbury are reachable by an excellent rail network, as are areas of great natural beauty, such as the Lake District, the New Forest, and North Wales. And it’s only a quick trip to Dublin and the Republic of Ireland.

Academics

At the Gabelli School of Business in London, you will learn business in a European commercial capital while fulfilling your core and major requirements. You will learn from British executives and professors and take your learning outside of the classroom by visiting the headquarters of various U.K. businesses. Past business visits have included Aston Martin and the Chelsea Football Club.

Apply for the semester internship program here. Only students in the official internship program will be permitted to work or intern while studying in London.
