Cross-cultural Learning

Each school offers courses that students enrolled in member schools may take part in. This interconnected system of learning allows students to experience various styles of teaching, utilize new technologies, and build strong personal and professional relationships. Since its founding in 2012, the network has offered a range of courses open to member MBA students such as Finance Technology, Sustainable Business Development, International Entrepreneurship, Operations Management, and many more. 

Additional learnings and opportunities include the network’s annual investment competition. The event, which is sponsored by the Yale School of Management, gives students the chance to present investment ideas from the country in which they attend school for a chance to win cash prizes. Teams from each school compete and their efforts are assessed by laudable professors and industry professionals.

Hands-on Experience

Of the many network courses being taught this year, one that is worth noting will take place during the month of October at Costa Rica’s INCAE Business School. The country’s leading business school will be offering a course in Operations Management Analytics. Over the course of two weeks, students will learn about strategic operational configurations. Through the use of mobile simulation technology, they will develop and strengthen their analytical. The mobile simulation, Medica Scientific, presents a company that is in a rocky situation and the students must use their critical thinking skills to guide the business to financial and operational stability. The game requires students to initiate control over all major logistical and operational decisions such as inventory, labor, and company finances. 

This type of education technology is increasingly finding its way into classrooms around the world, and for good reason! Applications such as these play a critical role in promoting engagement and knowledge retention. The technology allows students to take what they learn in the classroom and put it into practice. Professors remain an integral part of the classroom as they are essential for tying together the complex operational concepts with the strategies needed to succeed in the game.
