Let's get Fiscal 2020


Have you ever wanted to study Accounting & Finance at Oxford University? How about visiting a fin-tech incubator in the UK and participating in a live stock exchange simulation in Stuttgart? Or perhaps learning more about different cultures and exploring historical sites while studying in Europe? The 2020 Let’s Get Fiscal European Study Tour scheduled during the summer school period is the perfect opportunity for you to combine both study and travel in Europe.
 
This is a 20-day intensive study tour to UK, France and Germany to provide students with new insights to the areas of accounting and finance on a global scale which is essential to any business degree in the 21st century.
 
This exclusive tour will include a series of lectures in Accounting and Finance held at prestigious universities such as Oxford University, EM Strasbourg University, the University of Stuttgart and organisations such as the International Accounting Standards Board and the Bank of England to enable students to discover the importance of these areas in the world economy. While the content of each tour varies students will gain academic and practical insight into Refinitiv in the UK and major banks in Europe, take part in a simulated trading activity at Stuttgart Stock Exchange and a role play demonstrating the decision making process of the European Parliament, and have access to seeing how cutting edge companies such as Mercedes Benz operate.
