Class of 2015 back on campus in Providence!

Written on October 31, 2014 by Caroline Quintanar in News

The current IE Brown EMBA class had their third residential period in an unusually sunny Providence, RI in October. The week was packed with activities that challenged students to bring together their business acumen with a spirit of creativity and entrepreneurial imagination. Early in the week students participated in yet another outstanding Creativity Workshop where they were tasked with developing an idea for an enterprise 500 years in the future. The four themes for the workshop required students to pursue their visions of sustainable solutions around relevant challenges in society today: education, healthcare, agriculture and entertainment. Students also visited the Betaspring (http://www.betaspring.com/about) incubator, based in Providence. Each of these activities along with the week’s coursework led the participants a few steps closer to one of next major phase of the course- the Immersion Week in Cape Town, South Africa next January.  To build excitement and set the stage for the upcoming experience, students had the chance to meet the director of the documentary “I Live to Sing” (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2816158/) and rising opera singers from the University of Cape Town Opera School, inspiring them with the kind of energy they will encounter in Cape Town next year.
