London is the third most expensive city in the world, right behind Tokyo (#2), and Moscow (#1). Even with this label, Xavier has kept the program costs reasonable, without losing quality. For MBAs the base cost of the program is $4,150, which does not include the cost of the three (3) credit hour class or the certificate program. Mature undergraduate students can participate and can have this course counted towards their 18 hour spring semester credit-hour total.
For $4,150 you will receive:
(1) Roundtrip coach airfare
(2) Eurostar ticket from London to Paris
(3) Van transfers to and from the airport and train station
(4) Double occupancy in hotels in London and Paris
(5) London Tube Pass and a Paris Metropolitan pass. This means you’ll be able to take the subways and buses to almost anywhere in London and Paris.
(6) Admission to the Louvre Museum, Eiffel Tower, and a boat ride down the Seine River
(7) 2-3 group meals
(8) If 15 or more students participate in 2022, Xavier will be able to pay for additional cultural activities and meals.
If a participant wishes to have a single occupancy hotel room, this fee increases to $4,952.
Our trip costs provide participants with airfare, cultural expeditions, and public transit passes.
Additional Costs for Undergraduate Students
Undergraduate students who are taking fewer than 18 credit hours including the London-Paris trip in the Spring 2019 will not have to pay for an additional course. However, if this trip puts them over 18 hours, they will have to pay an overage fee. Please note that this course will count as an undergraduate elective, unless the student is admitted to the MBA program (application and GMAT required) and pays the MBA student rate.
Additional Costs for MBA Students
MBA students will need to pay for the cost of a 3-hour class. However, students participating in the Values Based Leadership concentration who are also Cintas Graduate Ethics Fellows are eligible to receive a $3,000 reimbursement of the base costs, as outlined below.
Additional Costs for Certificate Program
Business professionals, who will be getting the International Business Ethics and Compliance Certificate and three (3) Continuing Education credits, will need to pay a program fee of $1,000 on top of the base costs.
Xavier students taking the Values Based Leadership MBA concentration should consider applying for the Cintas Graduate Ethics Fellowship (CGEF). MBA students planning on enrolling for two approved MBA electives (e.g. BUAD 681 - International Ethics in London and Paris and BUAD 609 - Online Business Ethics Through Film) can apply for the 2020-2021 CGEF, before September 21, 2020. CGEF students who successfully complete the Fellowship will receive a $3,000 reimbursement of the London Paris trip expenses ($4,150).
Another scholarship opportunity is the Phil and Beth Gasiewicz Study Abroad Scholarship, which must be applied for by November1, 2021.
