You’ve Got Mail.

Let’s rewind back to the fall of 2018 when I got home after a long, dreary day.  Flipping through the mail, I noticed a postcard addressed to me about a study abroad class for international business students and MBA students:  Innovation and Entrepreneurship in a Global Environment. . . Hmm.  . . Having enjoyed the Startup Pitching and Planning course as my first MBA elective, I began developing an interest in entrepreneurship. . . I also enjoy traveling. . . I also enjoy having fun. . . This year (2018) has not been fun for multiple reasons. . . I also need another elective credit for the MBA program. . . Done!  It took me a grand total of a couple of minutes, to decide to apply for this class.  This is going to be awesome! 

“What am I looking forward to?” you might ask.  Exploring the cities:  Bologna, Verona, and Milan.  In our visits to these “less popular” Italian cities, I’m really hoping to get a glimpse of some of the finer details of Italian culture not offered by the road more traveled by (which I’ll still definitely visit the next time around).  Eating the food – no explanation needed there.  Meeting the people – the best trips I’ve been on involved meeting locals.  Learning the operations of small businesses that compose such a large slice (pun intended) of Italian culture.  Rediscovering the history you learned about in middle school.  And finally - amateurishly attempting to speak some Italian – 53 day Duo Lingo streak and counting! 

Buon Viaggio!
