And they’re off. IE Brown ‘16 students arrived in Cape Town, South Africa for a week-long experiential learning session. We throw students into a foreign environment with unfamiliar rules and culture to force them to apply their IE Brown business skills to develop market solutions.
Follow #iebrown on Twitter to find out how they’re faring and see their fantastic photos.
The South Africa session provides students a chance to test drive concepts learned in their Entrepreneurial Opportunities in Developing Economies course and the reflective learning skills stressed throughout the program in courses such as Ethnographic Research Methods and Globalization and the Arts.
The trip includes daily visits to Township sites as students investigate opportunities related to sanitation, retail, couture, food products and construction. The week closes with briefings by student teams attended by many key players met during the visit.
