Academic Associates Abroad (AAA)
Monday 24 March 2003 , Dr Robert Crane, Jean-Olivier Laval


On march 24th a meeting with Dr. Robert Crane (let see the CV) give us the opportunity to share the particular approach of AAA concerning abroad executives programs ...

Mission Statement

On the philosophical plane and in a world driven by culturally-based disputes and rivalries, American Academics Abroad aims at promoting international understanding through on-going contacts among business and academic colleagues and their companies and institutions. In its modest way, AAA seeks to foster comprehension of others via direct contact among citizens of different countries, among the differing world views they hold, and among different faiths.

On the concrete level, AAA offers its services to both academic institutions and companies to conceive, develop, and run quality programs. Specifically, AAA has engineered a series of modular programs geared to executive audiences, particularly from North America, which allow executives to perceive the functioning of the European mind, European companies, and the European Union. These programs are offered in different European cities or combinations of cities. The goal of the programs is to enable participants to seize both the cultural base and the practical workings of Europe. Separate modular programs also have been adapted for student audiences on a more theoretical base and at lower cost

We are Paris-based group of Senior Consultants working in international education helping universities enhance the value of their offerings abroad.

We provide the following services:
- In-house Needs Analysis
- Program Evaluation and development
- European initiatives including Executive and Graduate Educational programs

Sample Program
