ITALY – H-FARM is a great example of what effective education should look like in the 21st century. An evolving ecosystem that harnesses frontier tech and transformative mindsets to offer students, businesses and entrepreneurs the tools to prosper, it does so with programmes that lock in the importance of advancing the sustainability agenda. We have featured the Venice-headquartered international hub before on these pages, and are delighted to share news of an exciting course due to begin at its H-CAMPUS next September. Namely, a Master of Science in Entrepreneurship and Applied Technologies, led by the Muma College of Business, University of South Florida (USF), which is collaborating with H-FARM.
“Students learn more by doing, by jumping in and working alongside other entrepreneurs,” explained Dirk Libaers, Professor at the University of South Florida and Director of the Master of Science in Entrepreneurship and Applied Technologies. “H-FARM is a different kind of organisation– it is focused exclusively on entrepreneurship and innovation and has several dozen start-ups on campus. That, combined with the top-shelf business education, is what makes this opportunity special.”
The application window to apply for the course, which will be taught in English, is open until May 4, with lessons set to get underway in September 2020.
“This master’s program is an educational opportunity that did not previously exist in Italy and, through its high quality courses, allows students to acquire the same qualification that is issued in the United States right here in Europe,” Carraro said. “Students are led through a process that allows them to acquire the skills that are now essential for those who want to have a managerial role within a company or the foundation to support their personal business idea,” added Carlo Carraro, H-FARM’s Head of Academic Programs.
