Italy has a rich cultural history and entrepreneurial heritage, so it is also a great place for innovation and start-ups.
The IB495 class at the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Collat School of Business spent one week in Italy exploring Bologna, Sant’Agata, Verona, Grezzana, and Milan.
The study abroad program focussed on the evaluation of the environment for innovations and entrepreneurs. It provided an insight into the culture, history, and economy of Italy. During multiple visits to businesses from the automotive, financial, architectural, as well as the food and agricultural sector students gained a stronger awareness and better understanding of Italy’s business climate and the resaons why Italy continues to be a great destination for innovation and entrepreneurship.
