Current and past London Business Semester (LBS) students and faculty co-directors speak of the cohort aspect of the program – fifty OCB juniors – as one of the most unique and enduring part of the study abroad experience. The fact that year-in and year-out almost ten percent of the OCB undergraduate student body chooses to spend a semester abroad speaks to the success of the program.
Spending a semester in London – not as a visitor for a week or so but as a student – with the opportunity and responsibilities of taking a full academic course load, living in a British home, traveling (both on excursions and in a group) and volunteering in a British social service agency; cumulatively make LBS special.
So what makes the London Business Semester work? Several students have maintained blogs of their experience; and have shared them with us. We are pleased to pass four of them on to you so you can read first-hand what makes the London Business Semester special.
