The CFE and International Programs in Engineering (IPE) collaborate for summer Entrepreneurship Focused Study Abroad. As dedicated College of Engineering partners, both departments offered two new study abroad opportunities to U-M students Summer ’16. We continued both opportunities to students for Summer ’17.
May through June is a 6-wk/ 9 cr program in Singapore . July is a 3-wk/ 3 cr program in Italy.
Both offerings saw robust applications from students campus-wide! Selected and participating students find themselves immersed in intense academic courses in partnership with host-country universities (yielding transfer credit), interactive treks to local startup enterprises, meetings with alums/companies/venture capitalists, leadership building/team-bonding workshops, as well as the local culture of both destinations: Europe and Asia!
Back on U-M’s campus, student participants RAVE about their entrepreneurially focused overseas experiences!
