Is accommodation and food provided (included in cost)? 

We have estimated the total costs (flights, accommodation and food) to be about $5,000. The actual costs will depend on our ability to find low airfares, possible University based accommodation etc. and the selected students will be involved in the choices and therefore the costs. We will also look for possible funding sources to support the costs but students should be ready to pay up to the estimated amount.

Has this study course been offered before? When and to where?  

The first pilot course took place in 2017, when 12 SAF students went to London, UK from August 19 to 27. They had an amazing learning experience and this year will be no different!

How many students are selected? 

The course is restricted to 12 students, due to the limited ability of firms to have on-site facilities for meetings with larger groups of students.

What is the application process? 

Please see the application details above and be sure to submit it by the deadline.

Do we get a credit for the study trip?

This is a for-credit course under the code AFM415 (i.e. equivalent to any one term course).
