Graduate Study Abroad Programs

Spring 2022 programs with tentative travel 

Italy - INTB 8001: Luxury Innovation with Professor Dianne Hardin.

In this course, students will work on a mini capstone project where they will create a luxury marketing strategy and design new product ideas for a client who fabricates licensed basketball team memorabilia from retired basketball courts. The new products will be focused on creating a collaboration between an Italian automobile brand and Artsman Sport. Students will participate in a two-day interactive workshop where they will begin to develop engagement strategies that align with specific fan audiences; and will participate in an innovation workshop where they will start to create a “Dream Catalog” of new product memorabilia. After the seminar, and prior to travel, students will participate in several project review meetings, culminating with the presentation of their new memorabilia ideas to the client. International travel will include stops in Florence, Milan and Lake Como, Italy. 

Application required, accepted students will be given permission to register.
