  • New CEA London Study Center: With more than 14 years of experience in London, we're pleased to offer an affordable study abroad option in this fascinating city.
    • Courses at the CEA London Study Center turn the city into a classroom, engaging students through purposeful site visits that incorporate London's rich culture, colorful history, and thriving business environment. An intentional course list—with an emphasis on communication and business—complements our international internship opportunities, and includes London-themed courses in areas such as art history, history, literature, and theatre studies.
    • Our partnership with London South Bank University (LSBU) further enhanced our London offerings. With a diverse student body and centrally located campus, LSBU offers coursework in business, engineering, humanities, social and policy studies, psychology, and more.

  • Familiarization Trips: CEA's Familiarization Trips offer faculty and staff the opportunity to assess academic offerings, on-site staff, and facilities firsthand. These organized group site visits enable visitors to experience, with their colleagues and peers, the same educational and cultural opportunities made available to students during their time abroad. In 2017, CEA will be offering Familiarization Trips to Prague, Czech Republic and Buenos Aires, Argentina. For more information about upcoming trip locations, dates, and details, please visit the Meet Up With Us page on our website.
