Study Abroad in Ireland

Spend two weeks in Cork, Ireland with faculty from the University of Montana and University College Cork learning about research, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Work in interdisciplinary teams to solve real-world problems with early stage startup businesses.

Learn from research scientists, visit research institutes and Irish start-up companies, and network with entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and economic development organizations. Experience Irish culture, including its entrepreneurial business environment. Gain an understanding of the strong ties between Cork and Montana, particularly in the start-up sector. Ultimately, you will finish this course with a broadened international perspective and a strong understanding of Ireland's economic role in the European Union.
