Olin Global Program Opportunities

BSBA Entrepreneurship & Startups in Europe

This Olin summer program provides the opportunity to explore two unique European business environments: Spain, one of the southern European countries worst impacted by the 2008 recession and now well on the road to recovery; and Bosnia and Herzegovina, a transition economy, emerging market and applicant country to join the European Union (EU). The program will consider the entrepreneurial environment in each country and associated challenges and opportunities linked to membership in the EU.
Madrid and Sarajevo are fascinating cities, each representative of their countries’ recent history and in dynamic stages of transition. This program offers the opportunity to meet local entrepreneurs and work closely with a local startup on a consulting project.
