The Libra Group, a privately owned international business group, operates its International Summer Internship Program in cooperation with the American College of Greece, the Greek America Foundation, the University of Piraeus and the Instituto Griego Antenagoras I. Launched in 2012, the program today embraces 40 interns per annum to undertake internships at Libra Group subsidiaries around the world.
“The success of this program is bringing opportunity and inspiration to a new generation,” says George Logothetis, Chairman and CEO of the Libra Group.
“Students learn about our businesses, strategy and management philosophy along with developing their skill-set. It widens horizons and offers the powerful combination of experience and understanding to bright young people in helping to shape their careers and their future.”
The internship program places students at one of the group’s 25 key international locations, which include New York, Miami, London, Athens, Beijing and Buenos Aires.
The Libra Group’s subsidiaries primarily span shipping, aviation, hospitality, real estate, and renewable energy. The internships take place during summer vacation and include a stipend towards travel and living expenses – covered by the generosity of the Libra Group.
The 2014 program commences on June 4 and concludes on August 1, with the exception of internships in hotels and hospitality which will conclude in early September at the latest.
Greek America Foundation founder Gregory Pappas is clear about the benefits. “We are very fortunate to partner with the Libra Group in this exciting endeavor. It offers young people a springboard for opportunity and professional development like no other program in our community– not to mention an unforgettable global experience. To us, service to young people is at the very core of our mission and we’re grateful to Libra for this dynamic enterprise.”
“The aim of our internships is to provide a real-life program for students to get involved in a wide variety of businesses in global economic centers and use that experience to build their careers and benefit their communities,” added Mr. Logothetis.
The Libra Group is a privately owned international business group undertaking strategic investment around the globe. The group was created in 2003 as a holding company for the diversified business interests of the Logothetis family and has experienced significant growth over the last decade.
