Held in partnership with the University of Alcala in Spain and CETYS University in Baja California, Mexico, the Lavin Entrepreneurship Center Executive Director, Dr. Alex DeNoble, accompanied 14 SDSU students enrolled in Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship (MGT 358) to Alcala, Spain. During this ten day intensive program students took advantage of an opportunity to study entrepreneurship in a cross-cultural setting from the unique perspective of the Spanish and Mexican cultures.

This culturally diverse and interdisciplinary program gave students the opportunity to work with their counterparts from the University of Alcala and CETYS University. Together they analyzed emerging business trends and were tasked with designing a business model based on perceived opportunities. Students also learned about climate change and sustainability and evaluated the viability of the business in Spanish, Mexican, and U.S contexts. Students were led by the SDSU Dean of the College of Sciences Stanley Maloy, physics professor Alan Sweedler, and psychology provost professor Nancy Marlin. Students had the opportunity to visit Telefonica, a state of the art co-working space for local entrepreneurs. In addition, students were able to tour the historic city of Alcala, Spain.

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