The Global Entrepreneurship Summer School 2016

The Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS) is a global initiative of six universities in Munich, Mexico City and Shanghai. 

You will get a chance to work in international and interdisciplinary teams to develop ideas that have both a sustainable impact for society and a self-sustaining, profitable business model. Over the course of 7 days, you will learn about entrepreneurship, develop your own sustainable business ideas, and build a network of entrepreneurial international friends.

Main criteria:

  • All undergraduate and graduate students, aged 18 – 27, from all fields are welcome to apply;
  • You must be enrolled at a university at some point during the 2016 calendar year;
  • Good knowledge of English.

Participation fee is EUR 119 per selected participant. Organisers may cover parts of the travel expenses incurred by selected international students, with a maximum of EUR 500. However, you will receive this grant in cash during your stay, so all grant recipients must be able to cover all expenses upfront prior to GESS.
