Aston Business School Exchange Program

Marist Abroad and Aston Business School (ABS) would like to announce a new and exciting study abroad opportunity specifically designed for students from the Marist School of Management to undertake major coursework at the Aston Business School in Birmingham, England. The Aston Business School is highly respected as a center of excellence for the study of business, and holds triple accreditation through the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), the EQIS (European Quality Improvement System) and the AMBA (Association of MBAs). The program is part of a newly developed reciprocal exchange program between Marist College and Aston Business School, with students from both colleges undertaking study at the respective partner institution. Aston Business School has a population of apprximately thirty five hundred (3,500) total students, divided almost equally between international and UK students.

Participants will take a full-time load of business courses at Aston from an approved list representing a range of business fields. These courses have been selected so as to potentially earn credit toward the completion of major requirements at Marist. Applicants must be third or fourth year students in good standing at Marist with a high level of proficiency in English as well as a minimum cumulative and major GPA of 3.0. Marist students will pay their usual Marist tuition and fees to study at Aston, and generally speaking, financial aid that students receive at Marist will still apply. Students will not pay room and board to Marist, but rather will be arranged and paid for on-site at Aston.

Potential applicants are urged to contact the Marist Abroad office as soon as possible to discuss academics, application, financial, and other details of the program (Marist Abroad is located at Hancock Center 2007, tel. 845-575-3330).



Speak with the Marist Abroad to discuss available housing options.



Marist students will pay Marist tuition while participating in the Aston program.
