Our Commitment to Experiential Learning

Whether it is a consultative experience, a simulation, or a real life business case, in experiential learning scenarios, students will be thrust into an environment where the challenges facing the business are ambiguous and unstructured, and the outcomes are based upon real circumstances.

Students will work across disciplines and tools to understand the nature of the challenge, and how to respond to either protect the company, exploit the opportunity, enhance the strategy, learn from a mistake and iterate, or recover from failure.

Most scenarios will be approached in teams, which will yield additional insight and enhanced soft skills that will be critical to personal future success.
