Rome Winter Break Study Abroad

Dates: December 31st, 2016 to January 14th, 2017
Course: MGT 358 Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship

Europe 2016

Lavin Entrepreneurship Center Director of Programs and SDSU Lecturer, Bernhard Schroeder, led a group of 17 undergraduate students through the Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship course (MGT 358) while studying abroad in Rome, Italy. In addition to the course, students had the opportunity to visit the key incubators in Rome and attend a few startup meetups. Students also stretched their perspective of the world and got a new point of view with a rich set of new experiences in a different culture. Students were part of case-study based classes that focused on topics such as, domains of group formation, market and industry analysis, business forecasting, and target segment benefits. Then they had to create a business model around a disruptive technology with a target audience in mind.

Students also engaged with seven business founders and through their interactions with the different individuals they were able to acquire an understanding of the local environment in terms of entrepreneurship. Students had two free weekends for side trips to Athens, London, Madrid or Barcelona. This course was intended to give the students a deep immersion into entrepreneurship in Rome and a very solid blend of academic and experiential learning.

I look for three I's in an employee--integrity, industry and intelligence. Of the three, integrity is the most important.
