Program Description:

Developing Entrepreneurial Character on Pilgrimage

This study abroad entrepreneurship & interdisciplinary humanities course will examine the intersections of developing entrepreneurial leadership & character virtues while on pilgrimage. A pilgrimage is a form of educational journey, as well as a journey of self-discovery. Students will study how visionary, entrepreneurial ideas are developed via purposeful, meaningful leisure, engagement with different cultures, and serendipitous meetings, while interrogating their own ways of viewing the world, community, and self in the process. Students will also study and be encouraged to operate from character virtues, such as perseverance, courage, teamwork, and open-mindedness experientially by journeying through reflective & rigorous dialogue on pilgrimage. The centerpiece of the course will be walking a section of the Camino de Santiago that has taken place without interruption for over 1000 years, dating back to at least the ninth century.

Dates: 4 Reynolda Campus class sessions in April starting on April 3rd. May 8-22 in Spain.
