Progressive Global Growth (PGG), a U.S.-based non-profit organization, has formerly launched its Academic Exchange Program known as STEAM-based education, specifically for Nigerian students looking to study in the United States of America.
In an interview with our correspondent, NDUBUISI MICHEAL OBINEME, the Executive Director of PGG, Christopher Riley, said that aside from its domestic programs, PGG also places STEAM students sponsored by indigenous Nigerian companies at top U.S schools in its network at no charge.
“We intentionally place students from the local operating area of a Nigerian corporation at elite U.S. schools with the appropriate network capable of assisting the company’s growth through various means which we discuss with our partners.
“We align each student with schools related to their future career field. After the senior secondary school graduates from University, the sponsoring company will employ the student, placing them on a managerial track.
“This approach helps brand a particular corporation in the U.S. by showing its investment in its future and in others ways which we lay out for our partners,” he added
