3) Our program is designed to create new business and workplace environments, new job opportunities, and practices to manage employees more effectively. When an initial immigrant wants to develop his/her first business in the United States, he/she encounters difficulties adapting to mainstream U.S. society due to lack of knowledge regarding business law, lack of awareness of the characteristics of the U.S. businesses, and language barriers.
