Summer 2013 the International Entrepreneurship Maymester class (MGT 460) will be traveling for 6 days (May 12-17) to Jamaica, visiting several different field sites within multiple industry contexts! The cost of the trip is estimated to be only ~$1800!!! Pre-trip meetings will be held in September, 2012.
The experimental course includes content from a number of areas including strategy, new product development, international business, and entrepreneurship. Students will examine how startup firms in emerging markets can develop distinctive products that resonate across international contexts. The focus is particularly on business development and leveraging knowledge. A rough draft of the Jamaican trip itinerary will be uploaded soon.
