International Business & Entrepreneurship

Because business skills are lifetime skills

Whether you are an aspiring entrepreneur or simply looking for a new perspective, this program connects you to the world of business … and also to the world of people.

Loads of Skills


Whether it’s a one-person startup or a multi-national conglomerate, business is business. To succeed, you need many of the same skills that are valuable in everyday life – how to negotiate, present, network, analyze and budget, among others. You’ll visit four of the world’s leading innovation hubs. But you’ll do much more than observe. You’ll design your own startup, create a business strategy, build a web site, plan projects – and understand both the “big picture” and tactical skills you need to think like a business person. All while acquiring prized skills like basic programming and conducting online research.

Program Highlights

  • Design a business from the ground up at our fast-paced Startup Bootcamp and pitch it to a panel of entrepreneurs. Spend the semester refining and improving your plan with the help of a mentor.

  • Spend an eye-opening 5 days at the world-renowned SxSW Conference in Austin, TX to explore what’s new, make connections, maybe even get your foot in the right door to land that killer internship.

  • Learn to create and leverage your personal “Brand.”
