Innovation in student career

    Because student’s careers are one of our priorities, at King Stage, we have developed a new innovative career programme for our students.

    How does it work?

    1. We will link a student to a Chamber of Commerce.
    2. Students can take a step forward in their international career by working with a Chamber of Commerce on a specific project.
