The City, London

"While I had been to London before on vacation, I never had the wonderful experience that I did going on this travel seminar. As a tourist I would never otherwise get the opportunity to visit and learn about MNE's and experience London from a financial perspective which was directly relevant to my studies at university. It was an eye-opener and really helped me focus my studies when I returned home. "
