Program Description:

Venture Consulting in Israel (Short-term Immersion Program)

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Between January 9th and 14th (2013) up to 12 selected students will work in Israel. While there, they 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 4 person 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 in April.

ELIGIBILITY

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.

TRAVEL AND EXPENSES

Students will be responsible for their own travel arrangements and expenses (estimated at $2,000 - $3,000).  Students will work in Herzliya (outside Tel Aviv) from the 9th through 14th. We will book hotel accommodation which will be included in the program fee (full amount TBA).
