Companies around the world seek graduates who not only have technical knowledge, but also the ability to apply that knowledge in diverse and dynamic environments. Experiential learning opportunities are an effective way to give students the leadership and team skills they need to successfully operate across borders and cultures, and provide host organizations with valuable insights to grow or improve performance. GBSN invites you to a highly interactive, international summit March 15 – 16, 2018 on Experiential Learning that provides an in depth examination on how schools use real-world projects to give their students an impactful learning experience.
At GBSN’s second “Learning by Doing” summit in Phnom Penh in 2016
, business school deans, directors and faculty from a dozen countries explored approaches to applying experiential learning to management education and opportunities to increase multi-sector engagement in management education in the Asia Pacific region, particularly with the private sector. The summit, held in Peru, builds on the success of that event while focusing on the Latin America region. The summit will convene colleagues from across the globe with a shared interest in experiential learning to:
- Discover innovative approaches to applying action based learning to curricula with an emphasis on the Latin America context
- Explore opportunities to increase multi-sector engagement in management education within the region
- Engage with international peers to share experiences, best practices, and lessons learned
- Design an experiential learning program that can be applied to your management education curricula
