"Entrepreneurial Leadership with Embedded Travel to Israel" will be offered as ENGR 310.001 (3 cr) in Spring, 2018. This new embedded travel course is the first study abroad opportunity for Penn State students interested in entrepreneurship and it is the only such program for students enrolled in the Inter-college Minor in Entrepreneurship & Innovation (http://enti.psu.edu). Students in any major are invited to apply.
In the middle of this semester-long course, faculty and students will travel together to Israel, the so-called Startup Nation. Travel dates coincide with Spring Break, March 2 - 11, 2018. The special history and founding story of Israel have given rise to a pervasive entrepreneurial mindset in the culture and society. The course will focus not only on entrepreneurship and innovation in Israel but across the Middle East. During our nine days, we plan to visit start-ups and meet entrepreneurs in agriculture, IT/media, high tech and tourism. We'll tour historic sites, see the desert, perhaps swim in the Dead Sea and experience modern city life as well. We'll stay about half the nights in Tel Aviv, the other half in Jerusalem with day trips to sites in smaller cities like Beer Sheva, and to farms in rural areas.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of - housing information not available at this time.
