Activities with International Components

With a view to raising its intercultural profile, the Université de Sherbrooke fosters several associations within its student and teaching community that organize activities with international components.

International Summer School for Young Entrepreneurs

Since 1999, the International Summer School for Young Entrepreneurs has welcomed some 200 participants at the Université de Sherbrooke from many French-speaking countries and regions, among them France, Morocco, Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Mauritius and the Ivory Coast.

The International Summer School for Young Entrepreneurs of the Université de Sherbrooke is open to young French speakers, 18 to 35, who wish to explore entrepreneurship and discover the range of skills offered by countries which have language in common, but consist of a variety of social and economic structures.

For more information, please see the article, 6th International Summer School for Young Entrepreneurs, published en français in Liaison, the academic community newspaper.
