USF Small Business Training Program 2012

Two students training others in the classroom

USF Business School Training Program, León Nicaragua 2012

This was the second trip of honors students from the USF School of Management since 2010. Students apply to the program in the fall semester of their academic year, then work as a cohort to research new business proposals and contribute to the ongoing development of a basic business administration course to be delivered in Nicaragua annually. 

In January or after the spring semester, they travel to Leon to deliver the basic business administration training workshops, and also meet with small business cooperatives, to assist in business growth problem solving and strategies. Outcomes this year included the launch of a small honey bee cooperative and strengthening business practices for an existing sewing cooperative business.
