The Summer Entrepreneurship Program (SEP) provides short-term, non-degree experiential learning opportunity for 30 Bulgarian students from all accredited universities in Bulgaria.
During five weeks of intensive entrepreneurship training, business education, and leadership development, participants have the opportunity to study at leading U.S. business schools where they interact and network with U.S. executives, entrepreneurs, and students. In addition, because SEP is designed as a mini-MBA program, participants develop life plans and business plans. These plans serve as blueprints for how students apply what they have learned upon their return to Bulgaria.
The SEP application entails the completion and submission of the SEP Online Application and SEP Supporting Documents. The deadline for submission of your application is as follows:
