Welcome in Worcester: our study trip just started!

We, as a part of the 2013-2015 MBA class, arrived yesterday in Worcester to start this unique incredible experience in the USA: discovering new markets. Antoinette of Swissnex and Prof. Jerry Shaufeld welcomed us on the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) Campus. We started with Prof. Jerry Shaufeld’s class, who gave us an introduction about the main differences between Switzerland and the US in starting a new business. In the afternoon, we discussed with Prof. Sharon Wulf about leadership in emerging companies. Our first day ended with an interesting Campus tour and the opportunity to observe WPI Students Government.

What for a great start!

Thanks to Prof. Jerry Worcester we had the pleasure to discover the huge Worcester Polytechnic Institute Campus. WPI was founded in 1865 and more than 4000 students are studying there. The Campus life is very active and students participate in nearly 200 extracurricular activities.

The student community is really alive with activity!
