Entrepreneurship Study Abroad
New Entrepreneurial Experiences Boost Creativity: Study Abroad
The fundamental learning outcome of any study abroad program is new perspectives, which is key to fueling an entrepreneurial mindset. At SDSU there are over 50 study abroad opportunities each year, covering a vast array of cultures from all over the world. Each country has an entrepreneurial clique that students will interact with, including fellow entrepreneur students, incubators, and founders. We strongly encourage taking advantage of these opportunities to immerse yourself in new settings and let them influence your thinking.
Summer in Spain June - July 2017
Course: MGT 358 Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship
Lavin Entrepreneurship Center Executive Director and Professor Alex DeNoble will take a group of undergraduate students for a 2 week long venture through the Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship in Alcala, Spain, just outside of Madrid. This course is designed to provide an overview of the entrepreneurial process in multiple contexts. Given the study abroad nature of the course, students will have the opportunity to work in multi-cultural teams and study entrepreneurship in a Spanish context. Through a unique arrangement with Alcala University in Spain, SDSU students will be working alongside of Alcala students to investigate the key principles of the entrepreneurial process as they pertain to opportunities that may emerge from this cross-cultural experience.
During this 10 day intensive program abroad, students will listen to lectures from both SDSU and Alcala faculty on the various aspects of the entrepreneurial process. They will also have time to work on projects in their study groups and to visit with local entrepreneurs. At the end of the course, student teams will present the results of an opportunity analysis and a designed business model in order to pursue the opportunity. These presentations will take place at Google's brand new co-working space for entrepreneurs called Campus Madrid.
