Note from the Dean
With spring break around the corner, our students are eagerly looking forward to global travel. Again this year, our Project Pyramid class will take teams to developing countries to work on bottom-of-the-pyramid business creation. Led by Professor Bart Victor and the Turner Family Center for Social Ventures
director Mario Avila, teams will be travelling to Ecuador, Ethiopia, Greece and Guatemala. These trips give our students the opportunity to broaden their global perspective and apply their business skills to alleviate poverty.
This year, trip participants will also carry the memory of Professor Jim Schorr, who for over a decade coached student teams. Jim passed away earlier this month after a battle with cancer. The Center has created a travel fund in his memory to support students for years to come. You can learn more about Jim and the fund here
