IXL-Center welcomes you to get up to date on in its 2015 Action Project Innovation Olympics, a six-year-old initiative, spread over an eight-week action learning experience that includes sponsor meetings, team presentation and feedback sessions to assure alignment with sponsors.
The program is an exceptional opportunity to have an extremely diverse student body working together on specific growth challenges faced by your organization.
The latest news is that the program has been upgraded and now includes the following additions:
- There will be “Multiple Competing Teams” as in the past, and these teams can now come from different universities, and/or from your own organization. We will help these teams enroll and guide them toward your challenge(s);
- The accelerated “Action Program” will run for eight weeks with at least four sponsor meetings, team presentations, and feedback to assure alignment, and the scheduling and duration of this program will now be more flexible.
- The “Internship Option” of this program will continue to be available, and you will have potential access and exposure to a much broader diversity of talent from different universities or parts of your own organization as part of your own leadership development programs.
- We are proud to announce new partnerships:
LIUC – Università Cattaneo is an independent, state-recognized institution situated in the small town of Castellanza in the province of Varese.
It was founded in 1991 by 300 entrepreneurs, united in a common goal and a significant number of economic contributions. The high concentration of entrepreneurs in the area and the desire to give life to an important educational project formed the basis of the idea of a university, which would combine the new kind of demands of the working world with advanced teaching and academic knowledge.
The University is housed in a nineteenth century cotton mill, which has been beautifully restored by the world famous Italian architect Aldo Rossi, winner of the Pritzker Prize.
It has three schools: Economics, Law and Industrial Engineering and offers a wide range of undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate courses.The teaching model at LIUC – Università Cattaneo is highly innovative and characterized by the links between economic, legal and technological aspects, in order to provide a unified view of a company with its functions and its problems. http://www.liuc.it/default.asp
