CURRICULUM & SCHEDULE

The program is comprised of three parts – regular part (learning curve), semi-finals (case study) and finals (project assignment.

Regular part – the learning curve

The regular part, or the learning curve, consists of a series of lectures, workshops and extracurricular activities during which participants gain new knowledge and professional experience aimed at perfecting business skills, stimulating creative thinking and self-confidence. In parallel, they are working together in pairs, developing mentoring and leadership.

During this period, managers have obligation to provide students, their mentees, with an internship opportunity in their companies, of a minimum two working weeks, to get acquainted with the company at the first hand.

Participants collect points for different activities, and ten pairs who get the highest scores progress into the next phase – semifinals.

Upon completion of the regular part of the program, participants receive certificates of successful completion of the AmChamps, if they were present at minimum 70% of the planned activities.

Semi-finals – case study

The ten pairs are given a case study by Coca-Cola Hellenic to work on over summer. They then present their results at the semifinals event, in September.

In addition, students get internships in AmCham member companies (at least one month) while managers have an opportunity to attend career coaching sessions with a special consultant.

Finals – project assignment

The three pairs who perform best in semi-finals move on to the finals, where, mentored by AmCham Board members, they develop special projects provided by the CEOs/GMs of the companies which have delegated managers. Each pair thus works on a real company-specific project. The pair that completes the assignment most successfully is pronounced the AmChamps 2019 winner at the special event celebrating the end of the program.
