blogs.cofc.edu MBA Cohort Travels to India as International Consultants By Kelly Nelson on May 29, 2019 Each year, students in the One-Year MBA Program travel to a global business capital to learn about its culture and industries. In April 2019, our MBAs visited Mumbai, India for their international immersion! Bel...
"Traveling opens our minds, our hearts and our eyes. The MBA curriculum over the past year has focused on developing our professional mindsets by improving hard and soft skills. The international trip to Mumbai, India was an opportunity to apply and further develop both skill sets.
During the trip, each Learning Team acted as a consulting firm to address unique challenges faced by international companies. While the endeavor highlighted expertise from respective focus areas, much of the work required implementing an array of soft skills. Team members were tested in the earliest stages of research with language barriers, time zones and cultural differences. Initially perceived as an inconvenience, this hurdle required team members to be creative in their approaches and proposed guidance.
I think our trip to India stands perfect example of the enrichment of learning through travel. Experiencing a new culture creates a new perspective for the traveler. It necessitates adaptability, gratitude, communication and patience." - Parke Beam '19, MBA Candidate
