Thank you S&B!

The American College of Greece is honored that S&B is such a critical and inspiring partner in DEREE-ACG’s International Internship and Study Abroad Program (IISAP)

Through S&B’s participation in DEREE-ACG’s IISAP, two DEREE students interned with S&B in Philadelphia, USA in 2014. This year, two more DEREE students are interning with S&B in their offices in Philadelphia, from January through end June, and they are thrilled.

“Every new beginning is a journey. In every journey you need luggage,” says Grigorios Vasileiou, a DEREE Management student, who interns with an S&B company in Philadelphia in the Human Resources Department. He advises “Get as much as you can from this journey; explore yourself, reach your limits, live new experiences. Make sure your luggage gets full. I feel really honored that DEREE and S&B offer such opportunities to students, and that I am one of the people that are now embarked on this life-changing journey – participating in the International Internship Program.”

“At the beginning of my college years’ journey at DEREE, I couldn’t ever have imagined a better finale,” says Evangelos Androulidakis, an Accounting & Finance student who is interning in a S&B company in Philadelphia in the Finance Department, adding, “I graduate while at the same time I have a lifetime experience as an S&B Intern in the America region, an opportunity-privilege which I’m able to enjoy thanks to DEREE. “Tomorrow is less frightening now, since my higher education knowledge gained after all these years and the intern experience in the most demanding market in the world are my strongest tools for the rest of my life.”

Through DEREE-ACG’s International Internship & Study Abroad Program (IISAP), DEREE students have the opportunity to intern with one of DEREE’s Stellar IISAP partners, – Coca-Cola, DIAGEO, the Libra Group, S&B – in their myriad offices worldwide – followed by or preceded by a semester of Study Abroad at any ACG partner institution, which the companies cover for the student.

As of February 27, 2015, the S&B Group has been acquired by IMERYS, a world leader in mineral-based specialty solutions for industry. Learn more about IMERYS here.
