Introducing Halley Bennett, our latest addition to the IE Brown team and one of the people that take good care of our students during the IE Brown Executive MBA. Halley recently attended the program’s face-to-face week in Providence, in June. Here is what she had to say:

As the newest member of the IE Brown team, I had the great privilege of participating in the most recent residential period, which took place at Brown University last month.  I came away from that experience fully convinced that the partnership between the business world and the humanities- the heart of our program- is one of limitless potential.  Needless to say, it was a thrilling experience. 

I was particularly fascinated by the skill with which the participants were able to synthesize their professional experiences, a variety of business topics, and the engaging, and often abstract, concepts covered in the humanities courses.  During “Psychology for Managers”, Professor Malle spoke extensively about the mutation of the human mind, teaching that the evolution of our minds is driven by our responses to complex environments.  Throughout the week, the participants were continually challenged to step out of the role of conventional learning and absorb very complex intellectual concepts in unique ways.  And not only did they absorb, but they evolved, contributing to that complexity and creating a powerhouse learning environment.  My conclusion?  The most recent IE Brown experience was no doubt one that “mutated” the minds of all present.  My brain feels bigger already. Literally.
