The Business Career Program will also provide students with the crucial communication skills necessary in an American business environment. Students will grow their business terminology and learn concepts in social interactions, customer service, negotiations, meetings, telephone conversations, and presentations.
The Business Career Program provides academic skills, hands-on training and practical experience to pursue a successful career in business as well as the opportunity for further education. This program will help you to develop and refine professional skills in key business concepts, including:
Skill Building Programs: Computer Systems Institute's Skill Building programs offer a way for students to gain professional skills needed in the business world. Each program is a specialized, fast-paced, flexible, and academically rigorous course of study. Students supplement classroom lecture with externships in various industry positions. Each program is four academic quarters (44 academic weeks) in length, and includes practical training as an integral part of learning.
The English for Travel (or ESL for Travel) course is designed for international tourist travelers and new immigrants looking for ESL, US travel, and cultural learning experiences in the USA. The English for Travel ESL program is designed to quickly build confidence in the English language by improving speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills for international travelers (B1 / B2 visa holders) visiting the United States for both business and pleasure. The coursework includes an integration of field trips to popular local sights and attractions that will give students the added opportunity to practice newly acquired language skills while exploring the unique history and dynamic culture of Boston.
Being familiar with the language is key to a successful trip. That's why CSI has designed this course to help you easily learn the key English language skills needed in areas such as booking flights or hotels, confirming reservations, and asking for directions. Mastering these skills will allow you to travel around the United States with ease and confidence.
Boston is the capital and most populous city of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the United States. It is one of the oldest cities in the US, making it rich with culture and history. The city's many top colleges and universities also make it a popular destination for F-1 international students from all over the world.
In addition to English language learning, students in CSI's ESL for Travel course will also be immersed into the rich Bostonian culture and history. Field trips may include a tour of the Boston Common, a trip to the historical Freedom Trail, a traditional American baseball game at Fenway Park, a culinary experience at one of many of the major neighborhoods in Boston, or trips to some of the dozens of museums located in the city.
