Scotland Entrepreneurship Faculty-Led Program
Travel to Scotland for 2 weeks with Management professor Michael Pace and earn 3 credit hours of course work!
Entrepreneurship is a mindset—how do you handle the intersection of ambition and uncertain and ambiguous situations? Join us as we journey to Scotland and learn what it takes to start a business! Scotland has a booming entrepreneurship effort underway, heavily focused on technology and healthcare, that is seeking to create jobs, generate wealth and breathe life into solutions for today’s challenges.
From our base in Glasgow, we will meet with startup companies and entrepreneurial leaders from across Scotland to learn from their experiences. Since culture plays a large role in the business realm, we will also venture out on excursions, including castles, battlefields and the (infamous) Loch Ness, to fully experience that unique Scottish culture.
