Nehru during one of the evening sessions. consideration, the six-week course has now been com- pressed into four weeks, beginning with the Fourth Session. This condensation has not cut down on cur- riculum content, and an extra hour of instruction has been scheduled each afternoon (except Saturday and Sunday). An option of two weeks of language to fol- low the four-week session is offered. The growing enrollment of domestically based execu- tives with an international operating function and of particularly promising employees of foreign nationality has required that the curriculum be tailored to meet more fully their needs as well. It has further caused a name change to Training Program for International Business Executives, since this tells better what the program is all about. An outgrowth of our Training Program at The Ameri- can University is the announcement by its School of International Service of a special 8-month course for business executive trainees. This intensive area-lan- guage course will begin September 19, 1960, and con- tinue until the last week of May 1961. It will offer: Middle East-Arabic; Far East-Japanese and Chi- nese; South East Asia-French; Latin America, Span- ish; Western Europe-German, French and Spanish.
