Campbell Business Students and Faculty Visit Entrepreneurial Hub HQ Raleigh

Campbell Business students and faculty recently visited the entrepreneurial hub HQ Raleigh to get insight from leading Moroccan business and government leaders.

The event was part of the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) coordinated by the U.S. Department of State where participants are nominated and selected by the staff at U.S. Embassies worldwide.

“One of our main responsibilities as educators is to light a fire in students and HQ Raleigh provides all the matches and kindling,” said Campbell Business instructor and entrepreneurship coordinator Scott Kelly, who serves as the business school faculty member at HQ Raleigh.

“When we encourage students to participate in events such as this, they don’t fully understand the value until they are sitting across from a global leader in a dialogue about what it takes to launch a mobile game into multiple countries.”

“The experience made me excited to enter not only into the real world, but into the business world,” said marketing major and Mt. Olive native Lucas McKay. “It was encouraging to see people that were so passionate about their industries and helping others succeed.”

“The best way to get work done is to work together,” said marketing major Zach Barton from Shallotte. “That was my main take away from yesterday. Encourage innovation because if not you will compete against it away.”

The event concluded with a tour of HQ Raleigh and an opportunity to spend time in Campbell Business’ on-site suite engaging with faculty and staff.
