Summer Programs

Corporate Programs

Corporate Programs are career orientation programs based on the principles of experiential learning where participants learn through observation and interaction with executives of an organization or a company.

The programs last four weeks and are divided into two phases. In the first phase, students are introduced to the basic principles of operation of a company while in the second phase they acquire experiential experience on its premises on a daily basis, participating in meetings and dialogues with executives and thus familiarizing themselves with the subject.
