King's College London LogoApproved KCL Courses:

Westmont EB students can take a Management Dept emphasis of three courses - with one upper division required course for the EB major (either econ or mgmt side), plus two upper division electives, and one course in a foreign language, or an internship with a London-based company.

Westmont students can also take non-Mgmt courses, but all KCL depts. function independently of the larger KCL-wide range of depts. and each schedule their own final-exam periods individually without a system-wide course listing, so it may be harder to coordinate with Mgmt schedule for classes and examinations.

The KCL Dept of Mgmt usually offers each semester two-three dozen upper division (250-399 level numbered) courses in Int’l Finance, Int’l Acctg, Int’l Mktg, Int’l Mgmt, Decision Sciences, and a full complement of advanced and specialized courses in Economics, Int’l Economics.

Founded at Westmont more than 25 years ago, the annual summer International Business Institute (IBI) in Europe provides students with formal college coursework and a wide range of interaction with business leaders from top multinational corporations, including visits to Daimler-Benz, Nestle, The Bank of England, Royal Dutch-KLM, as well as meetings with senior governement officials at The European Union and the British Parliament. On average, about 12-15 Westmont students do IBI each summer, and the itinerary usually includes 10 or more countries in Western Europe and Scandinavia, as well as Russia and Lithuania.

Westmont E+B faculty, Dr. Morgan and Dr. Noell, bring a wealth of international economics experience to IBI, and have taught on more than a dozen IBI trips. They have also led other Westmont foreign-study programs that traveled with students to China, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and South Korea.

Each 10-week IBI program includes three upper division courses (12 units total) that automatically meet three elective courses for the graduation requirements.
A typical summer line-up includes the following four courses:
