01 Feb Teaching entrepreneurship in South Africa
On her first co-op, Kate Pellegrino helped teach a course on entrepreneurship and co-led a new class on banking and financial planning as part of an initiative that gives poor students free access to business school.
And she did it all a few thousand miles away, in Cape Town, South Africa.
“It was an excellent first experience,” Pellegrino said. “I couldn’t have imagined a better experience.”
The third-year psychology major with minors in social entrepreneurship and international affairs opted to complete her first co-op abroad with the Tertiary School in Business Administration, which aims to foster a new generation of entrepreneurs living in South Africa’s poorest slums.
