What Our Students Say

Rachel Vetterman

"I like ELI because everyone here is very friendly and help me a lot with my class and my academic plan. I set my plan for English study and academic goals by ELI officers' help once I started my study here.  Also, Daniel always organizes fun activities for us to know the city."

Danny Canales

"The course Business Negotiation Skills held exactly what was promised and teased in the name of the course, and with the limited time of 10 weeks of lecture time, I feel like I got to know the maximum amount of beginners’ knowledge to this topic."

Study Abroad Student from Germany

Jack Bonnelycke

"To go from a Russian university to an American MBA program is a big jump. The educational systems are so different. The ELI Pre-MBA Program is an introduction to the American MBA. It gave me essential presentation skills and taught me how to write a research paper and do a case analysis. And, it made me speak and think critically in English."
