Program Overview

Host Institution
City University Business School is the only business school that is located in the City of London – one of the world’s most dynamic financial centers. Ranked 12th in Europe by the Financial Times and the undergraduate program ranked 3rd in the UK by The Guardian, City University Business School is well regarded in business education.

Host City
As one of the largest financial centers in the world, there is no better place to study business than the capital of the United Kingdom. In addition to the business sectors that make the city exciting, London is a center of the arts, entertainment, fashion, and tourism. With enough neighborhoods and sites (Buckingham Palace, Parliament, the London Eye – just to name a few) to keep a visitor busy, students will not want to leave!

To apply to this program, you must complete two main steps:

  1. Submit a UMD approval application - start by clicking “apply now” at the top of this page. This application allows UMD Education Abroad to approve your study abroad program selection so you may earn credit in a program outside of UMD.
    This application will require you to meet with your EA advisor, who will communicate important details related to participating in this program. If you do not complete this application by the stated deadline, you may not receive credit for your study abroad program and will lose your student status for the time you are not studying at UMD.
  2. Apply directly to the program provider. After receiving UMD approval, you should submit the program application directly to the program sponsor by their deadline. Your program sponsor will determine your official acceptance to a program. You must adhere to the provider's timeline, eligibility standards, and application requirements.

After being accepted to your program, your EA advisor will guide you through the course pre-approval process where you will determine which credits you will fulfill abroad.
