International Programs

3-week Management Programs

Mount Saint Mary College offers high-level training programs for international students from emerging countries. With a focus in different areas of Business Management (see course listings below), the goal is to empower participants with current management tools and provide international experience.

Geared to undergraduate students and recent graduates, there are intensive programs of three weeks, with classes and activities full time. The program takes place in January and July of each year, drawing on themes of interest to young professionals.

To facilitate access for students from emerging countries to these courses, students are supported by an extensive and successful program of partial scholarships, covering their expenditure on the course chosen.

We invite everyone to know of and participate in these programs.

General Description of Program

The courses are aimed at undergraduates and recent graduates in different fields of knowledge with an interest in pursuing studies in specific areas of management (see course listings below), in parallel to the development of English language proficiency. The goal is to add business to its formation, providing the student with an advanced vision of contemporary topics on the chosen theme and a vital international experience. Classes are taught entirely in English, with lessons and activities full time.

The courses are three weeks in length, full time from Monday to Thursday, including opportunities to meet Managers from American companies in the area. To ensure close contact between teacher and students, classes are composed of groups with between 15 and 30 participants.

A program tailored to your needs

The courses allow students to leverage their expertise in an international program without having to disconnect yourself from your university or internship in their countries of origin. The programs, equivalent to a postgraduate extension, were structured to be routed in January and July, leaving free three weekends in one of the most sought after tourist regions of the world.

Certificates (see below details on the certification issued to participants) are conferred on students by their presence in the classroom. There is no final tests and grades, but students have weekly assignments and seminars. The goal is to structure a program quite participatory and concrete, in which students actually engage in the development of practical activities.
