Build a Program
Let us help you transform promising professionals and students into highly capable leaders and change-agents.
We welcome program inquiries from units and departments at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, prospective program partners, including international businesses, banks, government ministries and university or secondary schools who want to enhance the skills of their employees and students.
By collaborating with us, you and your company or department will:
- Share your expertise with and learn from international executives and students.
- Build your professional network through contacts with international academic institutions and companies.
- Develop short-term educational and training programs to disseminate knowledge and recruit international students to your classes, research labs, or degree programs.
Why should you build a program with us?
We have more than 30 years of experience designing comprehensive, high-quality training programs and are the best at what we do. Our programs are inclusive and customizable to your needs. After completing one of our programs, our participants return to their home countries and enact positive change in their communities and/or companies.

2. Start Customizing
We will work with you to identify the key program details and learning outcomes to design the program that will meet your needs.
3. GET Trained
Once we have worked out the details, we will implement the optimal training program for your participants.
