The Summer Economics Institute (SEI) Student Summer Internship Program 2014 program is jointly organized by the US Embassy Ljubljana and the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Slovenia. It is held in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

SEI is a highly-selective, month-long program giving 20 Slovenian undergraduate students from Slovenian universities the opportunity to intern with AmCham Slovenia companies 4 days per week, as well as providing students with an understanding of basic economics, business and entrepreneurship through one day per week of coursework with a US Professor, as well as fields trips, site visits and invited speakers. SEI aims to give students an introduction to business and economics in the real world, as well as the tools to create new businesses – the foundation of entrepreneurship.

This program has been successful in encouraging students from non-business/economics fields to “find the business person inside themselves” and perhaps more importantly to find employment. We particularly encourage students from the natural sciences, engineering, mathematics, computer science/IT and medicine to apply. We would like to continue this success with SEI 2014, which will take place from June 30-July 28, 2014.
