Applications will become available in mid November, 2013. Please visit Application Process for more details on how to apply. 

In this course, students will see a variety of social enterprise models first-hand and have the opportunity to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of those models directly with leading social entrepreneurs. The program will expose students to the application of entrepreneurial approaches to issues as varied as sanitation, education, healthcare and employment. Students will engage in mini consulting projects on behalf of our host organizations. In addition, students will come away with deeper appreciation for the rich history and culture of Cambodia and the beauty of resilience of its people.
