MAY, TWO-WEEK PROGRAM

Italian Family Business Explained

The north of Italy is indisputably the area with the strongest industrial development in the country. Therefore, chances to visit the headquarters of some of the most famous Italian brands are at hand in the area around Verona. Our Italian Family Business Program is dedicated to students who are already familiar with the basics of entrepreneurship and who would like to explore how business is done in a different country. This program was originally developed for Northeastern University in Boston, but it provides a valuable curriculum extension for any unergraduate or graduate business program. A typical program consists of a two-week full immersion course, including 10 visits to local busnesses specialized in different fields. From wine-making to clothing and from the food industry to engineering, there is something to learn from everyone. We believe that listening to lectures given by the owners of some of the Italian top brands can give our students a real insight into what has made this country famous all over the world.
