  • About the Program

    About the Program

    Study where western civilization began; immerse yourself in the culture and the land that introduced many of the ideas that we, in the Western world, hold dear to our hearts. Walk among the hallow pathways where Aristotle and Plato talked and discuss rhetoric, an important tool in today's manager’s skill sets. More importantly understand that rhetoric is more than words it is emotions, it is feelings, it is communications! Ancient Greece, in particular Athens, is keystone to understanding Western culture, science, philosophy, society, theater, literature, mathematics, art and our form of democracy. Fortunately many of the actual locations where these events and dialogues took place are accessible to the public. By integrating the historical location and activities that have taken place there, this educational program is able to teach international business, entrepreneurship, ethics and innovation to name a few courses. Students experience the concept from a physical perspective and are immersed in the environment.
