More and more, students are choosing to study abroad as a result of increased globalization and demand for cultural competence in the workplace. While studying abroad is an exciting and valuable opportunity, prior to leaving home, students are faced with hundreds of questions about what steps they need to take and who they can really trust to guide them through their overseas journey.
What We Do:
SAC is a consulting agency that provides exceptional study abroad programs for students pursuing an undergraduate degree or higher and private language study. SAC researches, vets, and streamlines the application process for overseas course study, offering a wide-variety of accredited institutions to choose from and programs that are affordable. SAC also makes sure schools provide a solid curriculum, convenient and stable housing, and organized activities to foster friendship building and cultural connection. With our trained advisers, students can focus solely on choosing the right country and school for them and let us handle the heavy lifting.
We are increasing our international footprint and have contracts pending with language schools in 13 US cities and Ecuador, and are set to launch early Spring 2019. Our primary focus for the allocation of seed money is for the following:
Website Development (70%) Have built a e-commerce/coded website that will support our extensive database of programs.
Marketing (10%): Design a professional logo and print promotional material.
Staffing (20%): Hire temporary/ per-hour freelance writers to create content to be used for our website development.
For students wishing to gain professional experience and increase their chances for employment in their desired field, SAC offers a thriving internship program for content writers, project clerk/administrators, and social media bloggers.
We are dedicated to fostering overseas learning, and we know with your support, we have nowhere to go but up!
