Summer School Sail and Learn offers a unique cultural and educational experience for international students giving them a chance to experience and explore this tourist boom in world-famous tourist destinations. The program allows them to combine that experience with the Business Model Canvas methodology to build new business models, entrepreneurial ideas and projects related to top tourist destinations.

The program is based on the principles of the Business Model Canvas (BMC) where students develop their own innovative models by working in teams. The program is specific since it is held on several locations in the Central Dalmatia, i.e. the Croatian Adriatic Sea, and students are situated on sailboats travelling from one island to another. Island hoping allows students to experience the full extent of Croatia’s tourist season in some of the most popular world – class tourist destinations, during the Ultra Summer Festival. All in all, the whole program immerses students into the touristic experience, and is organized so that each moment is an opportunity for learning. Students attend organized workshops and lectures in two modules; Cultural and Academic. The Cultural Module consists of lectures by local entrepreneurs and business owners, as well as educational excursions, while the Academic Module consists of workshops in BMC and Leadership, and Marketing and Innovative Tourism. Students are required to create a project/entrepreneurial idea by the end of the program.
