Through this partnership, students across Sommet Education’s portfolio of bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes will benefit from original course content and learning experiences developed in collaboration with Traveller Made. In addition, Traveller Made will become an active recruiting partner of Sommet Education, regularly inviting students and graduates to apply for internships and job opportunities with the company.
Traveller Made will participate in the development and delivery of the curriculum at Sommet Education by providing original research, case studies and applied business projects for students to carry out as part of their degree programme. Members of the Traveller Made leadership team will visit Sommet Education campuses to share their expertise with students through master classes and other guest speaking engagements. Students will also be able to complement these learning experiences through educational field trips to the Traveller Made facilities in Paris.
