Attention all International Business and Trade Students!

American University’s Kogod School of Business – Washington Semester Program

American University’s Kogod School of Business – Washington Semester Program is inviting junior and senior undergraduate students majoring in International Business and Trade from around the world to apply for the prestigious sixty year old program of experiential learning in International Business and Trade starting August 2009.

The fall of 2009 experience is particularly unique: students will have the opportunity to interact with the newly elected president’s economic team in the White House, State Department, Treasury Department, Commerce Department, US- Trade Representatives, Federal Reserve Board and US Export Import Bank. Elected representatives of important committees in the United State Congress and senior officials of International Development organizations such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and Inter-American Development Bank are also included in this program.

In addition, students will have the opportunity to meet and interact with representatives of Fortune 500 Multinational Corporations, and lobbyists of Trade Blocks from around the globe, strategically positioned in the Washington Metropolitan area. Business students may undertake an internship in a profit or non-profit organizations and acquire hands-on knowledge and experience in US businesses and complete either an intensive research project or an elective from regular university course offerings (total of 15 credits).

For three days of each week, students will participate in intellectual discussions with major players in US business and those who shape world trade policies. For further information about the Washington Semester Program, please visit

Due to an overwhelming demand to attend this program, and the program’s limited space, Washington Semester will accept no more than 75 students. Students are selected through the following competitive criteria: academic aptitude, English language proficiency and a well-developed career plan in international business and trade or closely related field. Full or partial Scholarships are available for both US and International students and are based on individual needs.

Application Deadline is April 15, 2009. For further information contact:
