Students in Caldwell University’s School of Business and Computer Information Systems had the opportunity to travel to Italy to explore the field of sport management for a short-term study abroad excursion in January 2018. The students, along with their associate dean, join us on “Caldwell University Conversations” to talk about the trip that took them to Rome, Milan and Bologna. They share what they gained from hearing from professionals and visiting companies such as Nike, Ferrari Marketing, San Siro Stadium and Inter Milan. They also visited sites in Rome such as the Colosseum and St. Peter’s Basilica. They talk about the benefits of learning how to navigate on their own, enjoying the culture and food, and forming friendships.
