This course will examine the political and financial framework of European Monetary Union, with an emphasis on the changing role of London as a financial center within or apart from that union. The course involves a one-week study tour to London from March 7-14, 2020, preceded by five orientation sessions. Students will learn about the original convergence criteria for monetary union and the path each major country took toward that union. We will then discuss the unique challenges such a common currency brings to each country depending on the relative strength or weakness of their economies. Students will then work in groups for further research leading to presentations in advance of the trip. 

**Students must be enrolled in the BS/MS Finance program in order to be eligible. Approval is also required from Professor Claude Cicchetti
