The University of Iowa’s John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center (JPEC) announces the 2015 University of Iowa Business Model Competition with cash prizes! The Business Model Competition (BMC) is based on a new way of thinking about the entrepreneurship process. Ultimately, the BMC is a presentation on your start-ups entire journey, not just its current state.
Our English Language Discussion Circles provide a relaxed environment for international students to improve their conversation skills by speaking with American students. The ELDC are led by tutors from the Judith R. Frank Business Communication Center and are centered on weekly discussion topics.
Topics are chosen to explore American culture and practices. International students will improve their English language skills and American students will find it a perfect place to interact with international students to learn more about their cultures and to prepare for international experiences.
Circles offer an alternative format where students will play language games, engage in activities, or watch short TV programs to learn about American culture and improve language skills. Students can come for all or part of the hour and can bring their lunch.
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
