"The course in London allowed me to observe and understand consumers in another country other than the U.S. in a most interactive way. I learned how British culture and traditions were frequently leveraged by marketers to raise consumer awareness."Samantha Cao (IMC18)

You make this global market your classroom, learning from top local scholars and industry experts. You also interact with experts from leading brands, agencies, consulting firms and media in London, the leading center of finance, culture and business in Europe.

In addition to traditional classroom instruction, you also learn from guest speakers and offsite visits with local scholars, industry experts and leading brand consultants, including IMC alumni. While there, some students choose to travel to other countries before the course starts or after it ends to explore other areas of Europe.

Global Brand Equity is taught by Lecturer Ariel Goldfarb, and classes take place at University of London. Upon completion of the program, you return to Evanston or San Francisco to complete your quarter.
