Overview

The International Education and Entrepreneurship Ph.D. program at University of the Incarnate Word allows theoretical study with a practical impulse that involves an awareness of business and educational systems and their development in existing, new and emerging arenas.

The foundation courses combine comparative study of the educational and cultural systems of the world with experiential learning in entrepreneurship. The grasp of a nation’s outlook revealed by its education provides the key to understanding its intellectual and managerial endeavors; the practical skill of entrepreneurship suggests new ways of applying existing resources and encourages the development of new ideas in all fields. 

This concentration achieves its aim through a blend of theoretical study and practical engagement. Practical application and experience are achieved by each student in a six month internship in a country other than the home country.
