On Thursday, October 27th, we welcomed 35 students from the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle (New Sorbonne University) - Paris 3, majoring in Project Management. They were met in Philadelphia by Junior and Senior students from the University of Delaware Lerner Business & Economics.

The two universities are participating in a Mock Trade Mission which will continue with virtual sessions in November and December. They are interested in meeting business leaders who would like to act as mentors and share their international trade experience and expertise.


The students from France arrived in Philadelphia on Thursday morning after touring New York City.  The University of Delaware students came up from Newark, Delaware, to welcome them, tour the best of Philly, and gain valuable knowledge in a Leadership Seminar led by Ryan Sanders, Adjunct Professor.

FACC Members and guests joined approximately 50 French and American students and four professors for a Networking Reception with Refreshments.
