URBAN EXPLORATION | ENTREPRENEURIAL FOCUS

Insight Global Education is hosting up to 30 students in our expansive downtown apartments in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. Spend your next term learning from top academics, interning with change-making organizations, and exploring East Africa. The Entrepreneurship Abroad program will focus on entrepreneurship and innovation in developing countries. Students will work with social enterprises and local organizations in both an internship and consultancy capacity.

How it works is simple: we host students in our safe and central apartment complex while they intern with an organization of their choosing, take classes for transferable credits, and explore Uganda. Gain career relevant experience while interning abroad, develop new perspectives on global issues while studying abroad, and build global connections while living abroad, all while still in school.

what students are saying

"The practical knowledge that I have attained from studying, working, and living in Uganda, a country so different from my own, has become invaluable in shaping how I perceive my studies and future aspirations.

Although cliché, I know that this unique experience has already had and will have a lasting, positive impact on my life and cannot be matched by anything else that I have accomplished over the past four years of my undergraduate studies."
