The purpose of this immersion experience is to widen your global perspective on business and leadership, with a focus on entrepreneurship and venture capital. You will increase your understanding of the interconnectedness of global markets, giving you the opportunity to gain international experience in a very exciting emerging region of entrepreneurship and better understand the elements that determine the success or failure of new ventures.
In addition, this experience will provide you with opportunities to practice some of the skills and competencies important to effective leadership, including, but not limited to: self-awareness, communicating, cultural/global awareness, maximizing group/team effectiveness, and influence.
Students will also engage in business visits and teaming opportunities with local students.
Will Cardwell, Professor of the Practice in the Finance area, will lead this immersion.
