Summer 2017 takes 20 U-M Singapore bound and 28 U-M Turin bound students to another continent for entrepreneurial focused student experiences!  CFE and IPE have collaborated for a second year, these 48 students make up a significant part of IPE’s ~400 travelers.  Students going to Singapore will be immersed in three 3-cr courses at Nanyang Technological Unviersity. Students going to Turin will be part of European Innovation Academy’s cohort with Polytechnic University of Turin in pursuit of creating and launching their team’s venture as part of a one 3-cr immersion course.
Morning pre-departure orientation sessions are focused on general health and safety abroad, cultural adjustment and being a good representative of The University.  Afternoon sessions are specific to preparing students for what to expect upon local arrival, the region, local traditions, banking, and cultural scenario activities.
