This program is actually a seminar for young professionals and students who want to know more about the United States and how things are being done here. Those attending the seminar will hear from professors on how to be a leader of a team, public speaking skills and some of the cultural differences between the United States and France.
Also, there is a language component to help them improve their business English. We do not want the French students to make any of the common mistakes French professionals make when they go over to the United States. Therefore, this will be a kind of "survival kit" for them and we hope to push them to improve their English.
The rest of the program is filled with visiting professional offices and attending events in the city so they can learn the culture of Chicago.
I am very excited to launch this new program and cannot wait to share with you the results of how the students like it and the success they have because of it.
