The British Council Business School Roadshow is Coming
Save the Date!
The British Council is bringing a group of 12 UK business schools to Washington DC and New York City in February of 2017.
Small scale ‘fairs’ will be held in both DC (February 7th) and NYC (February 8th) at the British Embassy and British Consulate respectively.
