About This Midwesterner in London

During my time in London I will be studying at Richmond, the American International University in London.

About Richmond:
Richmond is a private, liberal arts and professional studies university. It is an internationally accredited institution established in 1972 in Richmond, London. Characterized by its international student body, more than 100 different countries are represented. Richmond is split between two different campuses. The Richmond Hill campus is generally where the freshmen and sophomores live; the Kensington campus is more centrally located in the heart of the city and is generally home to the junior and senior students.

About My Classes:
Rest assured, I will be studying like crazy while abroad. However, it is also important to note that I do not have class on Mondays or Fridays. Here’s some info on each of my classes:

Corporate Finance
Examines the financial needs of corporations and the range of mechanisms available to meet them. The concept of the time value of money is studied and applied to several decision models in capital budgeting and investment valuation.

Pictures of Power: History, Imagery 
The course aims to introduce students, by way of specific case-studies ranging from the ancient world to the modern day, to innovative methods of studying the past that utilise popular forms of visual culture and propaganda.

Operations Management
Provides a theoretical and practical understanding of operations management together with the ability to apply some of its major techniques to practical business problems.

Russian Politics and History
This course focuses on the political evolution of the world’s first Communist state – its birth, development, collapse and recent transformation.

Modern Britain: A Social Analysis
A general presentation of British society for students who arrive in the country and are keen to know about its way of life, patterns of though, and socio-cultural background.

Below you will find the Richmond logo, a map of both the Richmond Hill and Kensington campuses and finally, a map of the Kensington campus (where I will be staying) and its surrounding areas.
