BER Students Will Travel to London, May 21-25, 2018
Our students will study Brexit in seminars with leading economists and make site visits to international news organizations. This will be our fifth annual trip, and all expenses are paid by the program.
BER students participated in our fourth annual trip to London from May 22 to 26, 2017
BER students participated in our fourth annual trip to London from May 22 to 26, 2017. The seminars and site visits focused on Britain’s negotiations to leave the European Union (Brexit) as well as the soon-to-be-held British national elections. Seminars at City University London were held with six economists looking at different aspects of the Brexit negotiations, and the students met with reporters and editors at the Economist, Reuters, and the Financial Times, and made a site visit to the Bank of England. In their spare time, students visited cultural attractions and went as a group to see The Life of Galileo at the Young Vic.

BER Students Studied in London the Week of May 23, 2016
Our Business and Economic Reporting (BER) students made their third annual trip to London in May. They studied for a week at City University London, meeting with economists and making site visits to financial institutions as well as to leading media organizations such as The Economist and Reuters. A month before the British vote on whether to leave the European Union, the seminars focused on the contentious political, financial, and economic issues of Brexit and the potential economic fallout from a vote to leave.
The trip was a great learning experience and consistent with the program’s goal of deepening our students’ knowledge of business and economics. In addition to journalism courses, they take six courses in the MBA program at NYU’s Stern School of Business.
Our fourth trip to London will take place the week of May 22, 2017.
The trip is free to our students, thanks to the generosity of the Marjorie Deane Financial Journalism Foundation and the BER program.
