A delegation from King Fahd University in Saudi Arabia spent six days in Nashville learning how to create and build an entrepreneurship program, courtesy of an interdisciplinary group at Vanderbilt. The visit was in response to a weeklong trip that Senior Lecturer of Entrepreneurship Michael Burcham took to King Fahd in October as an adviser.
Burcham set up meetings with alumni, students, faculty and staff from Owen, the School of Engineering, the College of Arts and Science’s managerial studies, and the university’s Technology Transfer Office. The Saudi Arabian team also met with representatives from the Nashville’s mayor’s office and the Tennessee governor’s office.
