|Professional exchange programme in US|
GUWAHATI, Dec 2 – The Kolkata American Center has said in a communication that the Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Oklahoma is partnering with the US Department of State and the Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI) to host a five-week professional exchange programme in the United States that includes a professional fellowship placement at an American small business organization.
This programme, funded by the US State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs’ ‘Professional Fellows Programme,’ will inject Indian mid-level emerging leaders in small or start-up business ventures, business administration, Government, NGOs, business education, incubation hubs, community training programs or social entrepreneurship into working small businesses in Oklahoma and associate them with one of America’s leading universities.
The programme aims at providing professional experience and training that will nurture participants’ talent and prepare them for more responsible leadership positions in their businesses, communities and the society in general as they return to India.
In addition, the programme will provide US-based small business stakeholders an opportunity to collaborate with their Indian counterparts as they participate in a two-week outbound exchange to the respective countries in June 2015 and January 2016, stated the Kolkata American Center.
