The world is changing. The workplace is evolving. The way we find solutions must also be transformed. Prepare to think outside the box with the INCiTE Summer School!
This three-week intensive virtual Summer School will bring students from top universities together (the University of Edinburgh, University of Amsterdam, Nanyang Technological University, Jiangsu Education Services China and the University of Sydney) in transnational, interdisciplinary teams to provide an accelerated course in Entrepreneurship and Intercultural Competence. Together, you will build an innovative business solution for an urgent global challenge.
This project will create a unique opportunity for students to observe different methods of teaching, learning and problem-solving that span three continents, create international networks and be taught by world class academics, and demonstrate in-demand skills for your CV.
Corona update: The INCiTE summer programme will run as a virtual exchange programme with the experience of Chinese culture and Chinese business incorporated. Prepare to travel the world, from the comfort and safety of your own home.
