BER students at the first annual trip to London in May 2014.
BER will hold its second annual trip to London the week of May 25-29, 2015. As they did last year, students will study at City University London, focusing on the economy of the United Kingdom and the European Union. They will attend seminars in the morning, site visits in the afternoon, and social events in the evening. The trip is heavily supported through the generosity of the Marjorie Deane Financial Journalism Foundation and the NYU Business and Economic Reporting Program.
For new applicants to the program, we expect to have our third annual trip in May 2016.

BER students met privately with Mr. Volcker to talk about the recovery from the financial crisis and coverage by the business press. Later, there was a conversation and dinner attended by students, faculty, and financial journalists.
