If you are a University at Buffalo sophomore, junior, or senior, you can register for MGO 330, Entrepreneurship and Small Business, to join a three-week study abroad trip to Singapore and earn three credits. A student from any major University at Buffalo program may use this as an elective course.
Draft content follows.
Ths will be a three-week visit to Singapore. Students will have free time during the weekends and evenings, and on several weekdays, to explore Singapore. We will stay at the 3-Star YMCA @ One Orchard Hotel in central Singapore.
We will focus on understanding cultural differences and appreciating the value of diversity in businesses, non-profit service organizations, and in life. Our academic emphasis will be on social entrepreneurship. We also will learn about for-profit entrepreneurship.
We will conduct classroom discussions each week. We will visit businesses and cultural institutions during most weekday afternoons. A typical day will include morning classroom discussions and afternoon visits.
Many of our visits will to be social entrepreneurship (i.e., non-profit or non-governmental) organizations. About half of our visits will be to cultural institutions such as museums, music venues, schools, and parks. During our discussions, we will reflect on our visits.
We will use a three-week adaptation of an existing University at Buffalo (UB) syllabus. This will be a three-credit undergraduate course - MGO 330 Entrepreneurship and Small Business - based on experiential learning methods. The expected student levels are sophomore through senior. Students from any major program at UB may take this course as an elective.
