The Global Aspect of Business

The Pennsylvania School for Global Entrepreneurship (PSGE) at Lehigh University (Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) brings American high school students (ages 15-18) together with International high school students from all regions of the world for a five-week residential global learning experience.

The purpose of the PSGE program is to expose students to the topics of entrepreneurship, globalization, team building, project management, leadership and working within a culturally diverse environment and to ignite the students’ spirit of creativity, innovation and learning.  
This makes me so happy to see!  The notion of getting people interested in entrepreneurship and globalization at a young age is fantastic.

How to qualify?
The program is open to all current high school sophomores and juniors (ages 15-18).  Application to PSGE is a competitive process. The selection committee evaluates each application individually, and looks for evidence of academic ability, leadership, entrepreneurship, and community service.  Students of any nationality are welcome to apply.  To date, the program has had participation from international students representing Afghanistan, Antigua Barbuda, Argentina, Australia, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Columbia, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Netherlands, Palestine, Panama, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe.
