This mission that includes tours through representative city places, visit to colleges, local companies, real estate companies, and others, has also the participation of a first semester student from our Master of Arts in Management program.

The first session of entrepreneurship and innovation in charge of Dr. Lascelle Sweetland was about the 'Business Canvas' model. This model is a strategic management template for the development of new forms of business or in order to document existing ones. It is a visual graphic element that describes the proposed product or company value.

There they continued with the 'Business Canvas' models and practiced 'elevator pitch' exercises with their own business ideas; as well as they boarded digital marketing strategies.
