London is one of the most expensive city in the world. Even with this label, Xavier has kept the program costs reasonable, without losing quality. For MBA, Undergraduate and LEAD students the cost of the program is tentatively set at $4,600, which includes the cost of the three (3) credit hour class. Including the cost of tuition in the program cost is a new aspect of the program, saving students approximately $1,000. This does not include the cost of roundtrip airfare, which students must purchase separately. The tentative cost of the roundtrip airfare from Cincinnati to London Heathrow, returning from Paris to Cincinnati is $1,300. This would be in addition to the $4,600 program costs.
Mature undergraduate students can participate and can have this course counted towards their 18 hour spring semester credit-hour total.
For $4,600 you will receive:
(1) A three (3) credit hour MBA course in International Ethics
(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) 2-3 group meals
(7) If 15 or more students participate in 2024, 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 by $950. Not all students requesting a single room will receive one. This will be determined on a "first requested, first authorized" basis. If a request would leave a "forced single", that request won't be accepted.
Our trip costs provide participants with airfare, cultural expeditions, and public transit passes.
Additional Costs for Undergraduate Students
The cost of this course and trip combined is $4,600. This does not include the roundtrip airfare.Please note that this course will count as an undergraduate elective, unless the student is admitted to the MBA program (application and GMAT required).
