Venture Consulting in Israel (Short-term Immersion Program)

 
    PROGRAM OVERVIEW
  In January before the spring semester begins, up to 16 selected students will work directly with Israeli startup companies on specified consulting projects. WUSTL students will be matched with local Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) students (enrolled in their version of the course) to compose a cross-university team. After working a week on-site, students will return for the spring semester and continue to work on their projects remotely. The expectations for the depth and quality of the consulting projects are professional level. The written version of the reports will be due in March, and an oral presentation of the reports will be made by April. Students will earn 3 credits for participating.

PREREQUISITES
MBA, Junior, and Senior students who are interested in venture capital, entrepreneurship, international business, and/or small and medium business management may apply to participate in this 3 credit course (MGT 450C/550T). Introduction to Entrepreneurship or MBA entrepreneurship platform enrollment is a suggested prerequisite.
