Teaching Innovation Management in Sardinia

Dean Nicole Woolsey Biggart travelled to the island of Sardinia from April 5-11 to teach a short course on managing innovation at the Associazione Istituzione Libera Università Nuorese (AILUN). It was the eighth time Biggart has joined other top international scholars to teach in AILUN’s International Masters of Organizational Science program. The nine-month curriculum is built around special lectures by prominent faculty in sociology, psychology, economics and business. Biggart’s course, which includes interactive case studies and group projects, is tailored for European students who are interested in building a thriving local economy. Most of the students in the program are from Sardinia and have families that have lived on the Mediterranean island for generations.
