Entrepreneurship and Innovation, IPE/CFE Study Abroad


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!
