If you are a high school sophomore, junior, or senior interested in experiencing the intersection of business, language, and culture— this two-week program is for you. This intensive experience, presented by IU CIBER (the Indiana University Center for International Business Education and Research) will bring to life the phrase, “Business is global.”
The program's curriculum, supported by the Chinese Flagship Center, the Swahili Flagship Center, and the Turkish Flagship Center in the IU School of Global and International Studies, will introduce you to the less-commonly taught foreign languages spoken in these emerging economies:
Mandarin Chinese: East Asia
Swahili: East Africa
In addition, you will gain a basic understanding of the business practices of North America, East Asia, East Africa, and Turkey through an accelerated curriculum based on the Kelley School of Business’s top-ranked undergraduate program. These business classes will provide a basic understanding of business vocabulary and a general overview of how businesses operate as well as discuss current events.
Our online application form can be found on the program's website at http://go.iu.edu/6bw. The deadline for applications is April 7, 2015, so apply today!Link: http://go.iu.edu/6bw
