The number of students interested in pursuing international business or language studies in some capacity is overwhelming and much of this demand is likely a direct result of the recognition that employers place a premium on inter-cultural competence.
Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) October 24, 2007
In response to increasing student demand for study abroad, CEA, a leading provider of study abroad programs to U.S. and Canadian college students, has expanded its program offerings to include 13 new business, liberal arts and language options. These new opportunities, available for Semester, Summer and J-Term sessions in 2008, widen the already extensive program options offered by CEA.
"As business grows globally we have experienced a heightened demand for programs dedicated to a wide-variety of subjects with an international focus," says Colleen Miller, Director of Admissions at CEA. "The number of students interested in pursuing international business or language studies in some capacity is overwhelming and much of this demand is likely a direct result of the recognition that employers place a premium on inter-cultural competence."
In response, CEA has expanded its study abroad program offerings in five countries each with varying time commitments to accommodate student needs.
