In 2011, Michael Woodford was named the first non-Japanese President of Olympus.  Three months into his tenure, he discovered a $2 billion fraud, orchestrated by the Chairman of Olympus' board.  Mr. Woodford demanded the Chairman be forced to resign, but the board refused.  Woodford contacted the financial press, and was subsequently terminated from Olympus.  In 2012, he wrote the best selling UK business book "Exposure: From CEO to Whistleblower", and lectures all over the world dealing with fraud and corruption.  Michael Woodford is a special friend of Xavier's longest running London program, and is tentatively scheduled to have dinner with Professor Fiorelli's class in July of 2016.  Join us in this fascinating story of high finance and fraud.

Students in Xavier's Longest running London program can take two of the following three classes, all meeting in the mornings of Monday - Thursday:

BLAW300 (Professor Fiorelli) - a required course for all business majors, but since there's no pre-requisites, all students are welcome.  This course is also an E/RS focus elective, a DCR elective, and a GDST elective.

PHIL200 (Dr. Polt) - satisfies the 2d level philosophy requirement, or a humanities elective.

THEO (Dr. Helmer) - satisfies the 2d level theology requirment, or a humanities elective.
