WHAT IS AMCHAMPS SUMMER SCHOOL

AmCham’s one week intensive educational sub-program powered by Banca Intesa that enables participants to brush up a broad variety of skills and competencies that are becoming substantial in the modern job market and overcome the first challenges, both in case they decide to do corporate career, or to start their own business. After completion of this course, they learn how to work successfully in a team, develop strategies and business, and improve their knowledge regarding finance, accounting, public relations and communication, as well as cover a broad variety of business topics such as marketing and sales, customer relations, and presentation skills. This experience is designed to help them understand their strengths and weaknesses, as well as grow their network.

WH0 ARE THE PARTICIPANTS

21 ambitious graduates and postgraduate students from University of Belgrade, up to 25 years old. We are looking for participants who are devoted to planning their careers, eager to learn and are willing to challenge themselves to grow.

HOW WE DO IT

With its unique choice of lecturers, Summer School provides a critical element to students' education - an opportunity for them to learn from successful directors, managers and coaches from Banca Intesa and AmCham’s member companies. During the preparation of their final projects, students will be supported by the mentor – a representative of the University of Sheffield.

Interactive lectures and workshops on different business topics are held during one week intensive course at the premises of Banca Intesa and AmCham.

By working in teams of three people during the program, participants will strengthen the team spirit they will need later for the successful preparation of a final project - Improving Relations with Clients. Members of the team with the best rated project are awarded with the opportunity to directly qualify for the participation in the next AmChamps - Young Leaders in Change generation.
