70 UNL Students to Participate in Nebraska at Oxford Program

Seventy University of Nebraska-Lincoln students traveled to England on July 19 as part of the 27th annual Nebraska at Oxford Program. Sponsored by the UNL College of Business Administration, the study abroad program provides four weeks of courses at the University of Oxford in England, the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Nebraska at Oxford is the university's most popular study abroad program with more than 1,700 alumni who now live in 39 states and 10 countries.

Oxford Students in England
“The Nebraska at Oxford Program is the premiere study abroad program offered at the university because of our relationship with the faculty and staff at Oxford,” said Dr. Donde Plowman, James Jr. and Susan Stuart Endowed Dean of the College of Business Administration. “To be able to give our students the opportunity to study at this prestigious university gives our students a competitive edge in the job market and an experience they will never forget.”  

The program is open to undergraduate students of all academic majors with a minimum 2.5 GPA. Business students take two lecture-tutorial courses on British political and international economic policy called Political Economy of Britain Since 1945 and International Economics, for six hours of UNL academic credit. Non-business students can enroll in the course, Shakespeare's Dramatic Arts rather than International Economics. Lecturers for the courses are world-renowned faculty from the University of Oxford.

Cultural excursions supplement the course lectures and tutorials, including having high tea, attending the horse races at Sandown Park and a West End show in London, and experiencing a Royal Shakespeare Company performance in Stratford-upon-Avon.

“Coming from a small town, the experience of being immersed in different cultures and attending such a prestigious university opened my eyes to life outside our borders,” said Jake Daberkow, a 2012 Nebraska at Oxford participant. “The Nebraska at Oxford Program was a life-changing experience for me and I would encourage others to take advantage of these opportunities offered through CBA.”

The following is a list of students participating in Nebraska at Oxford. They are listed by hometown and the information includes their year in school and academic major.
