Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS) 2017
Venue: Munich, Shanghai and Mexico
Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS) is organized by the Social Entrepreneurship Akademie in cooperation with the four entrepreneurship centers of Munich’s largest universities. With the support of the SAP Foundation, the Mexican university Tecnológico de Monterrey and Tongji University in Shanghai joined the initiative in 2015, thereby expanding GESS globally.
The Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS) is a 7-day program supporting entrepreneurially-minded students who are strongly committed to improving our society.Our core values lead us to seek out students who are committed to peace and are taking responsibility for improving our global society, regardless of their gender, race, religion or nationality.
During the Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS), 105 motivated students located in three cities around the world – Munich, Shanghai and Mexico City – will experience a unique learning opportunity with a social impact. We encourage students from all over the world to develop innovative solutions that can meet the world’s biggest challenges in a sustainable manner.
All undergraduate and graduate students, aged 18 – 35, from all fields (e.g., design, computer science, business economics, humanities, social sciences) are welcome to apply. You must be enrolled at a university at some point during the calendar year. For example, if you are only enrolled until February, you can still apply even though you will not be enrolled in September. Our enrollment policy also applies to graduate applicants, including MBA and PhD students.
