We’re convinced that if you turn students loose and let them be creative and innovative, they’ll come up with some incredible solutions.”

An innovative new study abroad program in Beijing will help first-generation college students at The University of Texas at Austin combine their passion for entrepreneurship with their desire to help others.
Through a combination of classroom and community-based learning, participants will explore the concept of social entrepreneurship and reflect on Chinese history and culture. They will also compare and contrast the history of social entrepreneurship in the U.S. and China — and learn about the trends in globalization and industrialization that led millions of former rural farming families to migrate to Beijing in search of work.
