Champlain College interns participate in trade mission to Asia

Tue, 10/07/2003 - 8:00pm -- tim

Two International Business students at Champlain College will join a Vermont Chamber of Commerce trade mission to Asia in mid-October. Laura Herrema and Elizabeth Claflin will travel with a delegation of Vermont legislators and business people for an 11-day trip to Shanghai, China, Hong Kong, and Taipei, Taiwan.
For these students, the internship is providing learning experiences that can’t be gleaned from a textbook. This rare opportunity is supported through a US Department of Education “Business and International Education” grant received by Champlain College. The students have been working with Curtis Picard, Vice President of International Trade at the Chamber, to promote the trip, complete research, and work on the logistics of the trade mission.
