Summer Economics Institute 

Study and internship program for students

AmCham Slovenia in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy in Slovenia links academic and business career through student internship program – Summer Economics Institute (SEI).

Do you want to:

  • Learn about business and economics, even if they are not your field?
  • See what it takes to become an entrepreneur?
  • Intern with an AmCham Slovenia company?

 

SEI The Future of Business – Intern and Learn

AmCham Slovenia in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy in Slovenia links academic and business career through student internship program – Summer Economics Institute (SEI).

The Summer Economics Institute (SEI) aims to each year give top 20 Slovenian university students a US-style hands-on introduction to business and economics in the real world, the tools to create new businesses – the foundation of entrepreneurship and an opportunity to intern at AmCham Slovenia member companies.

We listen to the business ideas of young people, encourage the development of their business models, and build the entrepreneurial (self) consciousness of future leaders.

 

 

 

The program consists of:

  • A two week Lean Start Up program with a US Professor of Entrepreneurship with the aim of encouraging students to pursue entrepreneurial activities.
  • Site visits to companies and institutions.
  • Lectures and discussions with exceptional guest speakers.
  • One-month internship with AmCham Slovenia member company under mentorship.

This is not about textbook economics – SEI means learning by doing whether interning at an AmCham company or hearing directly from Slovenian experts about macroeconomics, financing a business idea, or using social media to promote a new product. For students who think business is not for them, we say: think again…or better yet, try it yourself! We listen to the business ideas of young people, encourage the development of their business models, and build the entrepreneurial mindset of future leaders.

Who may apply? Slovenian citizens aged 19-28 who are 2nd year and higher undergraduate (dodiplomski) or master’s degree students

Application deadline: Friday, April 19, 2019.

 

Companies often subsequently give a concrete job offer to the intern they cooperate with through SEI, so the SEI program also caters to the human resources potential of all employers seeking promising, young staff.
