General Description of Program
The courses are aimed at undergraduates and recent graduates
with an interest in pursuing studies in specific areas of
management (see course listings below) while also developing their
level of English language proficiency. The goal is to create a
foundation in business studies, 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. To ensure close contact
between teacher and students, classes are composed of groups with
between 15 and 30 participants. In January, classes will be taught
at Mount Saint Mary College, except of course for Health Care
Management that happens both in January and in July at MSMC.
Program Highlights include:
Intensive Courses in Business and Health Administration in the
Visits to companies
A program tailored to your needs
The courses allow students to leverage their expertise in an
international program without having to disconnect themselves from
their home university or internship in their country of origin. The
programs, equivalent to a postgraduate extension, were structured
to be routed in January, 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 based on classroom participation and
experential learning. Students have weekly assignments and seminars
and the goal is to structure a program which is both participatory
and concrete, in which students actively engage in the development
of practical activities.
