This intensive exchange opportunity provides undergraduate students with a deeper understanding of the United States, while simultaneously enhancing their leadership skills.  The five-week program includes seminar discussions, readings, group presentations, and lectures as well as educational travel, site visits, leadership activities, and volunteering within the local community.  Through all of these engagements, participants will examine entrepreneurship and economic growth related topics such as trade; investment; financial literacy; banking; microfinance; organizational development and management; innovation; strategic business planning; and corporate social responsibility.

The Institute’s four week academic program and one week study tour will focus on developing participants’ critical thinking, communication, decision-making, and managerial abilities while boosting their knowledge about the development, history, challenges, and successes of U.S. entrepreneurial enterprises.  The program will also examine social entrepreneurship and women’s economic empowerment both in the United States and globally.
