LEARNING LABs

Learning Labs focus on personal development. Students develop cross-functional and soft skills by attending sessions during which they will:

  • Cultivate intellectual flexibility
  • Develop problem solving skills
  • Learn to adapt in diverse situations
  • Refine cross-cultural awareness

ADVENTURE LAB

Entrepreneurial innovation is everywhere, ranging from start-ups, incubators and accelerators to “corporate entrepreneurship” projects to social entrepreneurship. That is why we design a unique AdVenture Experience.

The Lab includes conventional class sessions, case discussions, meetings with business angels, venture capitalists, serial entrepreneurs and other leading personalities of the Italian entrepreneurial ecosystem. Everything is oriented toward building your skills through the development of a real entrepreneurial plan. You work together with the teaching staff and mentors, who are expert in turning challenges and innovative ideas into a business plan and innovative new projects.

SOFT SKILLS LAB

Through the Soft Skills Lab, students develop competencies and skills to face business challenges.  The Lab helps students explore how to engage effectively in organizations and to discover their limits and capabilities.  Key skills learned include teamwork and team-building, effective communication skills, negotiation skills and leadership.

SOCIAL & ENVIROMENTAL IMPACT LAB

Leadership requires a wide vision of business. Ethics, responsibility and sustainability are three dimensions that managers must embrace and understand to achieve better leadership, stronger stakeholder relationships, a long-term perspective and more efficient resource management. For that reason, we offer students the chance to apply their creativity to solve real problems encountered by NGOs, social entrepreneurs and institutions. Students participate in helping these organizations to bridge social and environmental impact and the business economy.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT LAB

The Project Management Lab identifies the project characteristics: objectives, stakeholders and organization. It provides students with the skills to formalize the project scope, create the work breakdown structure (WBS) and manage processes and tools.

GOING GLOBAL LAB

We prepare students to successfully face challenges of a global market, and this requires the development of knowledge and cross-cultural skills needed to interact and work in international context.

BIG DATA LAB

The students will work on specific data sets to address a business issues and identify its key aspects and possible solutions. The full data discovery cycle will be covered from data ingestion to data wrangling to data visualizations.
