Meet Vina, Bachelor Student at Paris Campus

Meet Vina, our Bachelor student at Paris campus and see what she has to say in our interview.

 

Can you remember what your original motivation was for obtaining your degree? 
What motivated me to obtain a degree in international relations and diplomacy was the fact that there is more to international relations than just politics. It focuses on a broad range of topics such as environmental issues, preservation of cultural property, technology and so on. Continue reading “Meet Vina, Bachelor Student at Paris Campus”

SIU Madrid Visits Coca-Cola

 

Being a student at Schiller International University is not only about the classes, books, and long hours studying, but also about the amazing opportunities to discover the business world that surround our culture. That is why our faculty and staff are constantly thinking about giving our students a glimpse of what the business world outside our walls is like.

This week our students had the opportunity to visit the Coca-Cola Factory in Valencia, Spain. There, they had the chance to visit the museum and get to know more about the company and how it rose to where it is today. The visit was scheduled by our Graduate Program Director, Edgar Barroso, as part of the activities that our students have throughout the semester. It encouraged our students to further their knowledge in pursuit of their goals and enriched their university experience.

The Coca-Cola company is an American multinational beverage corporation based in Atlanta, Georgia. Its main source of revenue comes from manufacturing, distributing and selling nonalcoholic beverage concentrates and syrups all over the world.

Coca-Cola’s Vision:

  • To refresh the world…
  • To inspire moments of optimism and happiness…
  • To create value and make a difference.

“The Bonjour Effect” with authors Jean-Benoît Nadeau and Julie Barlow

 

After hosting a debate with author Rod Dreher on the virtues of living in a community with shared values in our present century, on TUESDAY NOVEMBER 7 at 3PM we will focus on a quite different setting and community, and explore the codes and idiosyncrasies of the French, meant as a language, its speakers and a state of mind. In their acute and funny book, “The Bonjour Effect“, authors Jean-Benoît Nadeau and Julie Barlow offer a retour d’experience, that is, some feedback and comment on what they have learnt in years of travelling or living in France.

Jean-Benoît Nadeau and Julie Barlow spent a decade traveling back and forth to Paris as well as living there. Yet one important lesson never seemed to sink in: how to communicate comfortably with the French, even when you speak their language. In The Bonjour Effect Jean-Benoît and Julie chronicle the lessons they learned after they returned to France to live, for a year, with their twin daughters. They offer up all the lessons they learned and explain, in a book as fizzy as a bottle of the finest French champagne, the most important aspect of all: the French don’t communicate, they converse.

Codes and conventions of a language and the culture it conveys are of course a major topic for anyone with some intellectual curiosity, but it should in particular appeal our students of International Relations and Diplomacy given their penchant and inclination to work on such topics.
