Dual Enrollment Opportunities
The Executive Internship Program (EIP) embodies some of the best elements of both traditional and contemporary approaches to education. EIP is a marriage of the theoretical and the practical, combining the best elements of classroom theory with actual experience in the world of professionals; it is academically oriented education based on experience.
Through the Executive Internship Program, students are assisted academically and experientially in developing skills which promote self-directed learning, self-awareness, goal setting, creative problem solving, and cross cultural sensitivity. EIP represents a strong response to the present day search for expanded educational options.
The EIP application period has begun for the 2021-2022 school year. This year, a Virtual Information Meeting was held on January 12, the recordings can be found on the EIP Information Meeting page.
