One of my very best personal experiences throughout my long professional career was being a student in the International Entrepreneurship program at Babson College.
In 1998, my past company Siemens decided to anticipate the competition, developing a joint program with Babson College to develop the Entrepreneurial spirit within the organization. Raising the talent of high potential and creating high-performance teams, capable of accelerating the transformation of a product company, into high-value-added services.
I was one of those selected for that program and thanks to that experience, allowed me to develop skills and abilities that helped me design and implement new global business areas at an international level, with a focus always on innovation.
A one-year international program, with professors from the most prestigious business schools, the participation of all managers of business centers and CEOs from different regions, in a spectacular and highly collaborative environment.
I seem to remember that this was one of the first international experiences of this type carried out by Babson College, between 1998 and 1999.
An unforgettable experience and I must thank Siemens and Babson College for that opportunity, whose principles continue to be a world reference today.
