Empowering Communities through Social Innovation

Looking for a meaningful way to spend your summer living and working in
another country?

Interested in becoming a change maker and discovering how social
entrepreneurship can bring lasting improvement to people’s lives?

We invite you to join the 2019 Maryland Social Entrepreneur Corps (MSEC), a
unique study and internship program abroad for undergraduate and graduate
students where you will spend your summer in a Latin American country
observing, creating and implementing sustainable business solutions to
poverty-related challenges.

SPRING: Prior to departure, you will participate in a spring course at UMD
(meets Wednesday nights from March 27th through May 8th) that introduces you
to the theory and practice of social entrepreneurship and its potential to
transform communities while preparing you for your summer fieldwork.

SUMMER: You will then spend eight weeks immersed in your destination country
while learning about social entrepreneurship through consulting with local
businesses and implementing development projects with rural populations.

FALL:  Upon returning to campus, you will complete a reflection course to
apply the skills learned abroad to your future coursework, career and your
own entrepreneurial ideas.
