We encouraged student development for students participating in the GTMBA study tour in South Africa. These students collaborated with other students in Beijing, China and learned to help local companies solve business problems. Funding this program helped students to discover cultural diversity, navigate international business protocols, develop global mindset, sharpen leadership skills, and broaden self-awareness.
We used this program to further faculty development and scholarly research by researching the global entrepreneurship, innovation, and corporate social responsibility initiatives in the Nordic region.
One of our main goals is to give students more opportunities for experiential education. The grant helped us accomplish this goal by funding travel and connecting our students with the Beijing University of Chemical Technology. It allowed them to become more independent and gain a more globalized perspective and learn more about Chinese culture.
