Overview of the program

2016 World Happiness Report gives the title of “World’s Happiest Country” to Denmark.  Do you want to find out why it is so happy?  Then join us for a 10 day Denmark immersion experience! 

Starting in January, 2017, Madison College will offer a 1-or 3-credit course called “Global Entrepreneurship.”  At the conclusion of the course in March, 2017, you will visit educational, business, and cultural places in Denmark. Cities visited will include Copenhagen, Kolding and Billund.  It will be a happy, global experience of a lifetime!

Course Information

The Global Entrepreneurship course has an option of 1-or 3-credits.  The 3 credit course is required for students who are enrolled in the Small Business Entrepreneurship diploma program.  Students in other programs may be able to take the 3-credit course as an elective course in their program (please see your program requirements).  Those who do not need a 3-credit course as part of their degree requirement can sign up for the 1-credit “mini” course that will have the same travel prep, participation reflection component as the 3-credit course.   Participants in the community who are not students but want to partake in this experience, can also take the 1-credit course to be eligible.

Instructors for the program are:
Janet Kilsdonk and
Jill Huizenga
