Starting classes at Pace University in New York City!
After attending their first and second semester respectively in France and China, students of the Global Entrepreneurship Program are now in the United States where they recently started their last semester of classes over at Pace University, located downtown Manhattan in New York City!
To kick-start the semester, students took part in an orientation day where they obtained useful information about Pace University, their class schedule, support services, health insurance in the USA, visa, IT and safety info etc. To help students settle in and transition smoothly into their new learning environment, the school also introduced its International Buddy Program to the students. This program matches incoming international students with students who’ve already completed a semester at Pace University to help the newcomers get all the hints & tips they need!
The day after orientation, students immediately immersed themselves into the semester as they started their first courses on social entrepreneurship and business law for entrepreneurship. During their semester at Pace University, students will also have courses on Private Equity Finance, Entrepreneurial Implementation and New Product Development. They will also have a series of elective courses to choose from.
We wish this year’s cohort all the best for their future endeavors in New York City!
