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.

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.

DIGITAL SKILLS LAB

This is a technical training Lab that allows students to learn software tools, online services and social media beyond the limits of personal use. Students can boost their productivity in daily work practices through exercises and group activities to enhance their understanding of technical tools that lighten processes and reduce workload.

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.

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.

CREATIVITY LAB

Students will engage in a series of exercises and simulations that will help deepen their understanding of how creativity can affect traditional decision-making processes. Creativity Lab activities have been designed as a hands-on collaboration of students who will engage in the process of developing, editing, critiquing and ultimately, presenting their work.
