SUNY Cortland offers this course in partnership with the European Innovation Academy (EIA), a three-week, intensive entrepreneurship "boot camp" where students work in multidisciplinary, international teams to take their business idea from the conceptual stage to the marketplace. To scaffold the three-week program, a SUNY Cortland Economics professor will teach an online course that takes place for one week before and one week after the program. The EIA Global Program is a fully virtual option. Participants, after building their team and developing their product prototype and marketing plan, pitch their product to actual investors. Students receive guidance from mentors and inspiration from keynote speakers throughout the three week EIA program. Participants have access to a chief mentor, design mentor, marketing mentor, intellectual property lawyer, pitch coach, and a life coach to assist with team dynamics and self-reflection throughout the experience. Each student will receive six entrepreneurship internship credits upon successful completion of the program.
In partnership with CAPA: The Global Education Network, SUNY Oswego is offering virtual courses and internships. Visit the online program brochure to learn more!

SIS has adapted its unique instructional approach to convey the most important aspects of their study abroad program in Siena, Italy to those that have or have not yet been able to experience the city in person. SIS prides itself in the teaching of Italian as a second language in a comprehensive way - allowing students to understand the socio-cultural realities that are inherently tied to the Italian language.
SIS strongly believes that linking the learning of a language (and other academic subjects taught in the L2) to this specific and unique place can provide an incredible added value source to the learner. Beyond live, in-person lessons with qualified instructors, students will be provided with a data bank of specific online material that will allow the student to develop a new kind of familiarity with this place, its people and its language. This may include a series of interviews, videos, pre-recorded lectures, virtual visits and conceptual maps to help the learner apply the language to online content and familiarize themselves with the linguistic context online.
SIS online courses are designed for students who are unable to participate in an in-person study abroad experience at the moment. The courses can also be used to prepare students for their upcoming semester abroad or to complete a foreign language requirement after a single semester abroad.
Program Dates: September 6 - November 26, 2021
