Summer School

From 7 to 20 July 2019, prepare to think outside the box. With the INCiTE Summer School, you'll work on an online Intercultural Competence and Entrepreneurship course before spending two weeks in Suzhou, China, learning about design thinking, social innovation and entrepreneurship.

You'll build a business model with a team from around the world to solve a global challenge, and pitch that solution to academics, local business and community leaders, and corporate sponsors.
