The primary mission of the Landegger Program is to train students for work at the intersection of international public and private sector activities. These young professionals, highly attuned to and knowledgeable of the demands and requirements of both sectors, will help bridge the differences in perception and communication that often separate these vital segments of society. The Landegger Program training provides the academic foundation upon which students pursue their individual opportunities, as well as promote broader societal goals around the world.
This past Tuesday we had the opportunity to visit the Embassy of Greece with a group of our Global Business Fellows. The students met with the head of the Office for Economic and Commercial Affairs, Minister Counselor Theodosios Vallas. Achilleas Rakinas, Third Secretary in the Political Affairs Office provided an introduction to Greek culture and history. The event concluded with a delicious offering of traditional Greek cuisine. Thank you to First Secretary Fani Lenou for helping to organize the event and making it possible for our students to learn more about diplomacy and the mission of the Embassy of Greece in the United States!
