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
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.
Students from a variety of creative disciplines will have an opportunity to develop, critique, and present original and creative work in a collaborative and supportive environment. Each Creativity Lab will include discussion of issues related to the creative process, developing and preparing the work itself, and the presentation and critique of the works in progress. Students will be introduced to and partnered with professional mentors from their area of interest. Creativity Lab has been designed as a hands-on collaboration of students who will engage in the process of developing, editing, critiquing and ultimately, presenting their work. At the conclusion of the Lab, the works from the participants will be curated and publicly displayed.
