Update October 2017
We are looking for host families from Feb - Apr 2018

Outlook 2018

The planning and preparation for the next internships at Credit Suisse and Mediaschneider has started. We are looking forward to a total of seven students from Namibia, Zambia and South Africa. What we still need are two to three additional host families in the Zurich area, who can host an intern from February to April 2018. Alternatively two families sharing an internship period and covering six weeks each is also a possibility.

It appears that the long-term cooperation with NUST is continuously improving. Advisory board member and marketing expert, Hans-Jürg Schär, was satisfied about his fourth assignment: "Working with the NUST lecturers before and during my stay was very good and has improved considerably compared to previous assignments." We are happy to get such feedback from our experts as it is very important for the development of our program.

In the second half of 2017, ten expert assignments have been successfully completed. As in previous years, Barbara Graf Horka will again do the last assignment of the year for us at UNZA.
