First Fullbridge Program in Saudi Arabia
- Saudi Arabia: Thursday, December 13 - 2012 at 09:52
- PRESS RELEASE
Fullbridge announced that it will run its intensive, coach-led month-long career preparatory course as a core component of Prince Sultan University's (PSU) Cooperative Education Program (Co-Op) in Riyadh. Fullbridge's partnership with PSU will facilitate a successful transition into the workplace for PSU students.
"We know PSU began the Co-Op program for seniors in order to prepare them for immediate employment upon graduation. By adding Fullbridge into the Co-Op, we are helping PSU take the next step and enabling PSU students to excel in the workplace."
During the 7-month Co-Op, students experience paid, full-time work with an employer in a professional environment. A large percentage of these assignments convert to full-time job offers for the students and many are in the top 100 Saudi firms.
This January, Fullbridge coaches - experienced business practitioners with MBAs from top universities, such as Harvard and Stanford - will lead 18 women and 18 men through a rigorous course of study.
The program focuses on finance, business analysis, teamwork, and communication; participants work together in close-knit teams under time and real-world context constraints.
These 36 PSU students will emerge from the program with a better understanding of the needs and expectations of top-tier international corporations and organizations.
"The Fullbridge Program has helped students from some of the most prominent schools in the world move towards their career goals," said Candice Carpenter Olson, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of the Fullbridge Program and former Founder and CEO of iVillage.
"American students attending Harvard University and MIT have found the Fullbridge Program an invaluable experience. We're excited about the opportunity to work with Prince Sultan University to give many of its students a head start on their careers."
