Illinois International Training

Illinois International Training is a unit of the Office of International Programs and Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We provide superior executive education programs for senior officials and managers from international businesses, government agencies, and academic institutions.

In 1992, the University of Illinois began training delegations of officials from China.  Today, the China Executive Leadership Programs (CELP) has hosted 185 delegations, more than 4000 high-level business leaders, scientists, government officials, bank executives, and academicians. Now Illinois International Training is expanding and improving on this successful training format and offering training to organizations around the world. 


What we offer:

The University of Illinois offers a variety of specialized programs varying in length from 14 days to ten months.  Programs include lectures; seminars; visits to U.S. corporations, financial institutions and government agencies; tours of University facilities; and other special social activities. Illinois faculty instruct in English or with consecutive interpretation by native-speaking graduate students studying in the respective field, and all necessary course materials are translated.  Upon successful completion of their respective programs, participants are awarded certificates signed by a University official.

Illinois International Training will work closely with organizations from countries around the world to provide executive education programs to the highest level of professionals and decision-makers. CELP management programs have had a positive and significant impact on many important institutions in China, through changes and improvements initiated by CELP graduates.  Now participants from other countries can receive excellent, practical training in their fields and benefit immensely from cross-cultural interactions with professors, U.S. business people, government officials and University of Illinois students.
