PA School for Global Entrepreneurship

Students of the PA School for Global Entrepreneurship help spruce up the backyard at NHS.

A former Pennsylvania Governor’s School, the Global Entrepreneurship program (PSGE) was established in 2001 and is a unique and experiential learning environment at Lehigh University.  The purpose of the PSGE program is to expose students to the topics of entrepreneurship, globalization, team building, project management, leadership and working within a culturally diverse environment and to ignite the students’ spirit of creativity, innovation and learning.

Sessions are facilitated by Lehigh faculty members as well as entrepreneurs and leaders of the local and international business community. The applied curriculum includes core and elective courses, entrepreneurial exchanges with leaders from business and industry, global exchanges, country presentations by international interns, business excursions to New York City and Harrisburg, team projects with local business partners, and a variety of other interactive experiences and activities.

The program is open to all current high school sophomores and juniors (ages 15-18).  Application to PSGE is a competitive process. The selection committee evaluates each application individually, and looks for evidence of academic ability, leadership, entrepreneurship, and community service.  Students of any nationality are welcome to apply.  To date, the program has had participation from international students representing Afghanistan, Antigua Barbuda, Argentina, Australia, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Burma, Canada, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Nigeria, Netherlands, Norway, Palestine, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, Venezuela, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe.
