“Our world has never been smaller, and I believe traveling is crucial to experiential education. Our itinerary will be a mix of cultural, hands-on, and educational activities—and of course a lot of fun, too,” said Gary Graves, Professor of Business Management/Entrepreneurship/Creativity.

 Highlights include:

  • Munich, Germany: City Tour, BMW museum, and business visit to discuss innovation entrepreneurship, and disruptive technologies;
  • Venice, Italy:  Walking Tour of Venice, Murano and Burano Tour, a business visit to discuss Microlending: Financial Innovation in a Peer-to-Peer Economy, Guggenheim Museum a Strategy Challenge with an international business and visit to Galleriedell’Accademia;
  • Milan, Italy: Milan Cultural Tour, Valpolicella vineyards, and our business visit we will be discussing Digitization and New Technologies in Italy’s Manufacturing Sector;
  • Optional 2-days to Rome, Italy: Walking Tour of the Historical City Centre, Colosseum & Roman Forum Tour, and a Vatican City Tour.

“We have chosen Germany and Italy because they are excellent locations to learn about entrepreneurship and the art of innovation. We’ll explore three European cities by planes, trains, and buses in pursuit of entrepreneurial innovation, global business awareness, and a love of cultural food and art! This truly is a life-changing experience, the kind of learning experience you’ll talk about long after graduation,” said Professor Graves.
