Academic Overview

Business is global!  Through lectures, field work, data collection, and company visits, CSU students will have the opportunity to learn about global economic processes through the exposure to non-US businesses. Throughout this two-week long program, students will participate in corporate and university visits as well as cultural excursions to enhance course material and cultural understanding.  

Students will be enrolled in one 3 credit CSU course (MGT 482A International New Venture Creation). This course will help develop the knowledge and competence needed to be an effective entrepreneur/intrapreneur in today's global workplace. The ability to use assets effectively, build cross cultural relationships, and utilize resources through business networks is vital to the success of entrepreneurial/intrapreneurial ventures. This course will help participants gain knowledge of the principles that underlie new venture creation in a global context.  

 After the end of the program, students can then choose to return to the United States or decide to further travel through Europe on their own.

Course Objectives: 
  • Identify the processes, challenges, and considerations of successful entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship in international environments. 
  • Identify and document the key components of business planning and execution for an international venture.
  • Describe the essential process that international entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs go through when they plan and execute their ventures.
  • Describe the influence that culture has on entrepreneurial and intraprenerial behavior and decision-making in international environments.


Students in the program will travel to London, Budapest, and Stockholm over the course of 2 weeks. This multi-destination program allows students to observe a number of different business practices in a variety of locations. By moving from city to city, students will see the influence that culture has on entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial behavior and decision-making in international environments.

Housing and Meals

Students will be staying in various hotels throughout the duration of the program. Breakfasts are provided in most hotels and some dinners will also be provided for the group; however, students should budget to pay for most meals independently.
