MBA Open Lecture: Business Development and Entrepreneurship

Room 2.07

That’s right, we’re back! After a very challenging period of the last two years due to the Covid pandemic, Anglo-American University School of Business Administration invites you again for an MBA Open Lecture with Mr. Mario Leone, MBA!

We invite all those interested to attend Business Development and Entrepreneurship led by Mr. Mario Leone, MBA on Thursday 18th, 2022 at 6 PM. Entrepreneurship is a capacity to innovate irrespective of company size, history, or market – new product and service development are often associated with startups and venture firms. In this lecture, you will learn about the skills managers need to have to succeed in this competitive environment. These skills are more subtle and go beyond a strong analytical foundation:

– Competencies that place a premium on creative thinking, cross-functional working relationships, and communications around customers and research trends are foundational. 

– Willingness to take calculated risks and the resiliency to overcome setbacks are the fabric of the new business leader.

Following the lecture, we invite you to take part in a live Q&A session with Mr. Leone. Light refreshments will be provided at this event.
