Student Application Deadline: November 17, 2017
ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION are a major focus of the Nova Scotia Community College. As part of this work we are presenting the third year of this exciting program opportunity!
This program has NSCC students working with students from Tra Vinh University (TVU) in Vietnam on a business idea that would promote entrepreneurship in the Mekong Delta region of Southern Vietnam. Students will work as a project team and do prior research as to what types of entrepreneurship ventures could be successful in the region. During the time abroad students will interview entrepreneurs and develop a business concept which they will then present to students and staff at TVU.
This program will be for two weeks in June 2018.
This program is open to first and second year NSCC Students with a passion for social entrepreneurship and business in general.
