Global Social Entrepreneurship Institute
The Global Social Entrepreneurship Institute is a collaboration between the Institute for International Business and the U.S. Department of State. This multifaceted, immersive program gives selected undergraduate college students from 13 European nations the opportunity to:
- Learn about and gain practical experience with social entrepreneurship and basic business skills.
- Gain an introduction to American business practices in the context of American culture.
- An individual project.
- A team project with an existing Bloomington-based nonprofit.
While spending time on the Indiana University Bloomington campus, students should be prepared to be busy, work hard, and have a lot of fun. They will have the opportunity to join in the celebration of American Independence Day and observe the local parade and fireworks display as well as a variety of other leisure activities such as movies, games, karaoke nights, and visits to the IU student recreation facilities. More than a cultural exchange program, students can expect a rigorous academic institute that will prepare them to employ entrepreneurial knowledge and skills to address social issues in their home countries.
