UAlbany Welcomes Students from South & Central America
ALBANY, N.Y. (Feb. 11, 2020) -- Last month, President Havidán Rodríguez welcomed 115 international students from Brazil, South America and Central America to a three-week training program for young international business managers.
While on campus, the International Business School (IBS) students took morning classes and workshops in marketing, management, finance, project management and strategic thinking. UAlbany offers the winter break program through a partnership with IBS in São Paolo, Brazil. The Center for International Education & Global Strategy administers the program.
In the afternoon, the students studied advanced business English through the Intensive English Language Program (IELP). They also had the chance to learn more about UAlbany's graduate and undergraduate programs.
After learning about American business in the classroom, the students had the opportunity to tour Plug Power, CommerceHub and GE Renewable Energy, and meet with business executives.
