And all without the government having to spend any money upfront, which is amazing.
Anyway as I said in my presentation,
this model is being used in Turkey right now and you said when you handed out that brochure in class last week, about the university’s global enrichment initiative...
You said one of the countries involves in that is Turkey.
Yes, that’s right.
So I wanted to see if there’s a chance...uh, the university sends fifteen students overseas to study?
Fifteen students per country, fifteen for Turkey, fifteen for Brazil, fifteen for Russia.
We’ve got a total of six countries participating next summer.
Yeah. And you spend six weeks in whichever country you are selected for.
The classroom component consists of seminars on that country’s culture, politics and economy.
Most sessions are taught in English by local professors, but two of our faculty accompany each group and also give seminars.
I’ll be going to Brazil to teach a seminar on coffee next summer.
But you’re an economist.
