2017 Business Capstone Field Trip – with thanks to alumnus Matthew Ripsom
This weekend, as Spring finally took hold in Italy, the Capstone students from Business Administration program at AUR felt the call of adventure and the open road. Below, just a few of the pictures from the ‘2017 Business Capstoners Field Trip’ to Umbria.
Friday saw the Seniors team visiting businesses typical of the region (steel, wine, truffles) and this was followed by a hugely enjoyable and active weekend of hands-on team-building (rafting, river-swimming rescues, and hiking the Marmore waterfalls).
These activities were financed through a donation by 2015 BUS Alumnus Matthew Ripsom, who wanted to ensure that the spirit d’corps he enjoyed during his Capstone experience would continue for this and for future classes. However, Matthew was not the only alumnus involved in the proceedings; our Rafting experience was hosted at Rafting Marmore, the Center run by the family of 2016 alum Camillo Dall’oglio, who helped in the logistics (and getting us a great deal!).
This was a fantastic weekend for our Capstone class and the University would like to express its deep appreciation to two amazing alumni for helping make this happen.
