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

Entrepreneurial innovation is everywhere, ranging from start-ups, incubators, accelerators to “corporate entrepreneurship” projects to social entrepreneurship. That’s 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

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.  Students will also understand the five process groups.

Digital Skills

This lab includes exercises, online tutorials and group activities for solving practical problems faced in the management of public and private organizations. Decision support, resource allocation, network analysis and web and mobile communication will be some of the tasks conducted by students using their own devices. The Lab allows students to tinker with software automation tools, online services and social media beyond the limits of personal use and to boost their productivity in daily work practices.

Going Global

Students learn how to face global market challenges, which require the development of knowledge and cross-cultural skills to interact in International contexts. Activities and Labs develop students’ international mindset through the experiences. Students also have the opportunity to spend a study period abroad in a prestigious Business School or partner University.

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 & Environmental Impact Lab

To our students we offer the chance to apply their creativity to solve real problems encountered by ONG, social entrepreneurs and institutions in their effort to bridge the business economy and social and environmental development.
