Entrepreneurship

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”


- Mark Twain

Entrepreneurship Study Abroad Programs

Italy

Italy

An Entrepreneurship degree provides students broad, intellectual and practical skills, and a demonstrated ability to apply knowledge in real-world settings. What better way to develop these broad skills then by studying abroad? Students will learn to identify opportunities, solve problems, test and validate assumptions, execute, and present while traveling through France, Australia, Ghana, or many other destinations. Students can also earn a Certificate in Entrepreneurship  at John Cabot University regardless of their discipline!
