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.
