Students of the new Global Entrepreneurship Program class first met on the morning of Friday September 2nd during the Opening Ceremony of the program.
After a welcome speech given by Program Director Rickie Moore and different presentations, students had the pleasure of attending an orientation seminar during the weekend which allowed them to do different team building activities as well as Yoga and Theater Improvisation. On Monday September 5th, the whole cohort gathered once again for an academic presentation during which Rickie Moore gave more details on the academic curriculum of the course. M. Moore also asked the students to introduce themselves and explain to their classmates what they are expecting from the program. While their career ambitions span a large panel of ideas and possibilities, the students all share the same objective: build up their entrepreneurial skills on three different continents, share their thoughts with classmates who have the same passion for entrepreneurship and create a global network.
Like every year, the Global Entrepreneurship Program welcomes students from many different countries, backgrounds and cultures which are core elements that make this program completely unique. For example this year’s cohort is comprised of students from Bolivia, Burkina Faso,China, Colombia, France, Germany, India, Russia, Slovenia and Thailand. Also, this international cohort comes from a wide variety of academic backgrounds including Marketing, Human Resources, Industrial Engineering, Biomedical Studies, Entrepreneurship, Financial Management, Hospitality Management, Economics, Accounting, Public Relations, Sales, Philosophy, Logistics, Electronic Engineering and Computer Science.
We wish the new cohort good luck for their future endeavors!
