Over 300 students have been involved in a joint course between the Odette School of Business and the Faculty of Engineering. This course, a mix of the Fundamentals to Entrepreneurship (business) and Globalization (engineering), is lead by Dr. Francine Schlosser, Dr. Zbigniew Pasek and Professor Ali Abdulhussein.
Students taking this course are tasked with developing new ventures in the classroom in multi-disciplinary groups. They took part in a Scavenger Hunt on September 16th, organized and delivered by EPICentre, to help with co-operation and trust within each team. Pictures of the event can be found below.
On September 17th, students were granted the opportunity to listen to David Schonthal, from Northwestern University in Chicago. David previously worked for IDEO, a famous design and innovation consulting company. This presentation would allow students to think creatively when designing new ideas for the course.
Both events were graciously sponsored by the Ontario Centres of Excellence.
