What’s the scoop?

Host Institution

Cass Business School, City University London, is the only business school that is located in the City of London – one of the world’s most dynamic financial centers. Ranked 12th in Europe by the Financial Times and the undergraduate program ranked 3rd in the UK by The Guardian, Cass Business School is well regarded in business education.

Host City

As one of the largest financial centers in the world, there is no better place to study business than the capital of the United Kingdom. In addition to the business sectors that make the city exciting, London is a center of the arts, entertainment, fashion, and tourism. With enough neighborhoods and sites (Buckingham Palace, Parliament, the London Eye – just to name a few) to keep a visitor busy, students will not want to leave!


What do I take?

Students can choose from a variety of business courses.

Language of Instruction: All courses are taught in English

For a full course list visit Cass Business School’s website.

Note that UMD cannot guarantee that a particular course will be offered in any given semester at Cass.

Credit for courses taken at UMD exchange institutions will be accepted as transfer credit.  Courses must be pre-approved by Education Abroad and the student’s academic advisor(s).  Courses must be taken for a letter grade and students must receive the equivalent grade of C- or better in order to receive credit towards their UMD academic record.  The grades for transfer credit courses are not factored into their cumulative GPA and do not show up on their UMD transcript.


When can I go?

Fall Semester: September 24, 2014 – December 12, 2014

Spring Semester: January 21, 2015 - June 5, 2015 (Exchange students may finish their exams by April 11 by opting for an alternative assessment.)


Where can I live?

Residence hall spaces are very limited, so most students arrange housing in the private sector with the help of City University's housing office.


What’s the cost?

University of Maryland students participating in an exchange program have the benefit of paying University of Maryland tuition rates and fees to attend the abroad institution.  An exchange study abroad fee is also assessed by the Education Abroad Office and students are required to purchase UMD health insurance coverage through CISI.

The tuition and fees noted above are charged directly to the student’s UMD financial account, which means that students can apply UMD scholarships, state and federal financial aid, and alternative loans towards the cost of the exchange.  Please see the Financing Study Abroad webpage for more information and available scholarship opportunities.

Housing costs are paid directly to the host institution or on-site housing agency.

For more specific information on the cost of attending this BMGT exchange, please see the BMGT Exchange Program Cost Sheet .
