Chapter Summary

The English Language Institute (ELI) at "Mountain Valley University" (MVU), located in "Ridgeview, Montana" in United States, has been operating for nearly 30 years and is accredited by the CEA. It aims to help international students prepare for entry into MVU by developing academic English language skills needed for academic study. The impact of corporate sector partnership with "Joint Venture Partnerships (JVP) Ltd" could then be seen as potentially helping to raise status of English language teaching unit and indeed some of participants could already notice such an effect on ELI and, in some cases, on their own status as individual professionals. This chapter reports findings from an exploratory research study that author performed near the end of his doctoral coursework, conducted with full approval from his university's Internal Review Board. These English language teaching professionals' host university was in midst of negotiations with a corporate sector educational services provider.
