Global Summer/ Entrepreneurship & Innovation
The Jack H. Brown College at California State University San Bernardino invites international student groups and professors to an annual Global Summer Leadership Program. Spend up to 12 Days during the summer season in Southern California exploring Entrepreneurship and Innovation, delivered by CSUSB's Center for Global Management (CGM) and our globally recognized Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship (IECE)!
Individuals with an entrepreneurial mindset are increasingly leading business and societal change. Entrepreneurs in all contexts - arts, business, public sector, healthcare, social movements - are unleashing innovation, solving pressing problems and transforming economies.
During the Global Summer Program in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, participants will explore the many facets of entrepreneurship, have interesting discussions, participate in experiential learning, and meet successful local entrepreneurs.

Intensive 30-Hour Program
The intensive 30-hour program examines the people and processes of entrepreneurship, addressing the questions:
- Who are entrepreneurs and what makes them unique?
- What are the processes and resources used by entrepreneurs and what drives innovation?
- How and where do entrepreneurial ideas come from? How can we tell the difference between an idea and an opportunity?
- What are the different startup models and tools employed by entrepreneurs?
In addition, participants will have ample time to visit various tourist sites in Southern California and socialize with fellow participants, expanding their global network of connections. Ultimately the participants will learn how to think and act like an owner in any context!
