Students participating in the "Italy: Leadership in the Workplace" program will also study the Renaissance and how it impacts today's world. The portion of the course that takes place in Italy will examine how leaders throughout Roman and Italian history used different types of leadership to build the Roman Empire and spread the Renaissance ideals.
