The University of the West Indies (UWI) returned to Vaughn College for the summer international internship program with a group of graduate students from Trinidad and Tobago from June 16 to 21. The objective of the program is to introduce students from the Caribbean region to professional knowledge of the United States National Airspace.

On the last day of the program certificates of completion were presented and five students participated in a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Maxine Lubner, chair of the management department on “Opportunities and Challenges of the Aviation Industry in the Caribbean Region.”

“Thanks to the program, students return home with exposure to business models of airport planning, and international management strategies,” said Wendy Francette-Williams, education consultant and professor for UWI.

Following the program students received a chance to visit New York City landmarks and tourist attractions before their return back.
