13 Oct 2017

​In October 2017, swissnex Boston welcomed 13 students from the School of Management Fribourg, accompanied by the School’s Director, Professor Rico Baldegger. The HEG Fribourg (HES-SO) offers a Master of Science in Business Administration with a major in Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Growth Management.

Every year, as part of this program, the scholars have the chance to fly over the Atlantic to discover new markets and explore the Entrepreneurship ecosystem of Boston. This year, the students are working closely with Swiss companies to tackle the challenges that arise when entering new markets – and adjusting their innovation strategies accordingly. swissnex custom-built this 5-day program to complement the students’ needs and interests.
