Students learn business abroad IN BRIEF
By GRACE HILL
"It was like an international sum-
mer camp," said fourth year Univer-
sity nursing student Laurie Jurkie-
wicz. "I stayed in a big house with
50 other trainees from around the
Jurkiewicz spent three and a half
months in Athens, Greece this past
summer working for American Ex-
press through the University chapter
of the International Association of
Students In Economics and Business
Management (AIESEC). "It was a
great business and cultural exper-
ience." she said.
AIESEC is an international or-
ganization which strives to increase
global understanding and cultural a-'
wareness through the exchange of
students in a business environment.
AIESEC has more than 63 chapters
at Universities across the United
States and 552 chapters worldwide.
The organization was founded in
1948 when students from seven Eu-
ropean countries gathered to establish
better communication and economic
interdependence to prevent World War
II from reoccurring. The program
reached the United States 10 years
AIESEC's main program, the in-
ternational trainee exchange program,
involves the temporary placement of
foreign students into companies
where they can put their academic
skills to work in a practical situ-
According to Madeline Finesmith,
Director of Corporate Contributions,
the program allows one American
student to work abroad for each for-
eign student employed in the United
Xavier Bladedall, a fifth year bus-
iness student from Escade business
school in Barcelona, Spain, said "The
more you give to it, the more it
gives to you. On a professional lev-
el, it was my first experience work-
ing on a team and in management;
on a personal level, (AIESEC) gave
me the chance to work with people
from many other countries, experi-
encing different cultures and different
Mark Denomme, director of Public
Relations, said more than 6,000 stu-
dents from 64 countries worldwide
receive internships in the areas of ac-
counting, finance, economics, mark-
eting, and computer science. The
programs range from six weeks to 18
The group, which meets Wed-
nesday nights at the business school,
recently began the first phase in their
annual preparation to send students
abroad in a business internship ex-
change program. Students specify the
location and type of their desired
internship and companies choose
trainees based on nationality, skills,
language ability and education.
Once the student is granted an in-
ternship, AIESEC provides the
trainee with housing and transpor-
tation. They also encourage the stu-
dent to experience social and cultural
In addition to the business intern-
ship exchange program, AIESEC has
conferences, study tours, training
seminars, and cultural exchanges.
Although most of the 80 Uni-
versity members are from the busi-
ness school, students from all col-
leges - sophomore level or above
- are encouraged to participate. Ac-
cording to Denomme, "If you work
hard, you'll get a traineeship or at
least gain good experience which will
definitely be valuable."
Jurkiewicz, who worked with
debts and credits in international ac-
counts, said the duties were similar
to ones found in the United States,
but the way the company operated
was very different. "The culture
definitely had an effect on the way
the job was run," she said.
"It was a much more relaxed set-
ting," she said. "We had a lot of
breaks, and some people would vir-
tually end up not working the entire
Last year was a very successful
year for the Michigan Chapter, said
Denomme. In addition to having the
best marketing program in AIESEC-
United States, the chapter also had
the most outstanding local commit-
tee acheivement in the central region
of the United States.
This year the Michigan chapter
was also chosen to host the 1987
Fall Central Regional Conference
which took place this past weekend
at the Sheraton Oaks Hotel in Novi.

Firefighters die in training
MILFORD, Michigan - A training session for volunteer firefighters
turned deadly yesterday, killing three volunteer firefighters and seriously
burning a fourth as they tried to put out a controlled fire in an old
Two men and one woman were killed when they became trapped
inside the century-old farmhouse. "It was like a bomb, only you didn't
hear the explosion," witness Dale Miller said.
"They came in and set up the fire situation. For want of a better
word, (it was) a booby trap, where it goes off spontaneously and then
they go in to put it out," added Miller, who set up the deal between the
Milford Fire Department and the owner of the building to use it for
Police Lt. Dale Mallet said he didn't know the cause of the accident,
but some witnesses said the second floor of the two-story farmhouse
collapsed beneath the firefighters.
Stock prices drop in Tokyo
NEW YORK - The world's stock markets began the week on a
negative note with prices dropping sharply on the Tokyo Stock Exchange
in trading early this morning.
The Tokyo market's best-known indicator, the 225-share Nikkei stock
average, fell 308.23 points after the first half-hour of trading to
22,990.55. The index was moderately higher before turning lower.
U.S. investors were looking to Tokyo for the first indicators of how
the world's markets would fare following last week's volatility.
Exchanges around the world formed a cyclical relationship last week, with
foreign markets affecting and being affected by the activity in New York.
In New York yesterday, Wall Street prepared for the new week by
clearing out the debris left by last week's turbulence.
Chinese Communist Party
holds conference in Beijing
BEIJING, China - The world's largest Communist Party opened its
congress yesterday and delegates heard Deng Xiaoping extolled in a
speech that for the first time put the diminutive leader on a par with
revolutionary giant Mao Tse-tung.
In his inaugural address to the first National Party Congress in five
years, acting party chief Zhao Ziyang lauded Deng as a man who has
drastically altered the course of socialism.
Zhao characterized Deng's economic and political reform program as
the second great leap in Communist Chinese history. The first leap was
Mao's promotion of a peasants' revolution instead of the uprising of
urban workers described in classical Marxist thought.
UAW approves new contract
DETROIT - United Auto Worker members overwhelmingly
approved a new three-year contract with General Motors Corp. that
protects union jobs while freeing GM to seek looser work rules, the
UAW announced last night.
UAW members at 152 locals nationwide voted 80.7 percent in favor
of the agreement, said UAW spokeperson Frank Joyce. About half of
the union's 330,000 members at GM cast ballots, he said.
In all, 127,047 workers voted to approve the pact while 30,325
voted against it, Joyce said. The vote among production workers was
98,616 to 21,710 in favor while skilled trades workers passed it 28,431
GM has been notified of the ratification, which means the contract
takes effect today, Joyce said.
Love Boat lovers protest
A group of students exercised what they believed to be their "rights as
Americans" last week when they demanded that theLove Boat be shown
as regularly scheduled for 3:00 a.m. Friday.
"The Love Boat Crew," who watches the show nightly in 102
Rumsey, West Quad was disturbed when their favorite show did not
appear as a result of President Reagan's press conference.
According to faithful Love Boat lover Jonathan Weinstein, an LSA
sophomore,TheLove Boat did not come on, butPerry Mason, which was
not even listed in the T.V. Guide did.
"We were shocked, stunned, deeply miffed, and hurt," said Weinstein.
The group felt that it was their right and duty as Americans to take
The group called WDIV-TV in Detroit and told them, "Even if the
President dictates it to deny the lovers of The Love Boat to watch their
show, he doesn't have the right to (do it)."
After contacting her WDIV superiors, a staffer saidThe Love Boat
would immediately follow Perry Mason.
Weinstein said, "We believe that this is showing our exercising our
rights as Americans, using the judiciary system to voice our opinions."
He added that the episode finally shown early Friday morning was one of
the few featuring actor Vick Tayback, one of the group's favorites.
