Global Immersion Module (GIM) News

MBADiversity Latest Milestone: Global Immersion Module commences in 2008 in Shanghai China

Soyini Taylor, the 2008 Director of MBADiversity's new Global Immersion Module (GIM), has been working hard on designing and managing this new milestone for our organization.

Soyini, along with the help of over ten participants over the past six months on the GIM Design Team, has supported the next milestone for MBADiversity. GIM is an annual international trip to further prepare our members as global positive change agents. Along with non-segregated membership, GMAT scholarships, a National Symposium open to the public and MBA Math workshops, it is another milestone to add to MBADiversity's history.

For the 2008 Global Immersion Module (GIM), the organization will conduct a marketing research project for the legendary Quincy Jones. Mr. Jones is one of the partners of Alaska Glacier Water. This project will be conducted in Shanghai, China immediately after the National Symposium. Here he is pictured below with William J. Du, the CEO of Alaska Glacier Water.

Additionally, MBADiversity GIM'ers will help manage China's first night run with Nike (image above). It is called The Human Race.

The value of the Ross School of Business' commitment to diversity is evident in the success of our students and the recognition we receive from the marketplace. Ross students come from all over the world, bringing a wealth of personal and professional experience into our learning community. Together, the Ross collaborative culture and action-based curriculum prepare students to lead globally diverse teams, consider the role of business in society, and build organizational cultures that foster innovation.

Whether a candidate has a more traditional business background like consulting or finance, or a less traditional background such as working in the Peace Corps, teaching, or working as a professional musician, it is the candidate's ability to lead and make an impact in an organization that Ross is seeking. This ability is critical in our Multidisciplinary Action Project (MAP) course, in which student teams spend seven weeks working to solve real problems in real organizations worldwide. Students report that MAP is a transformative educational experience, unique to Ross.

The Fuqua School of Business appreciates and values differences inherent within our community. As an organization we are committed to building and sustaining an environment conducive to capitalizing on the diversity within our community as a source of intellectual, personal, and professional growth and innovation.

We strongly believe that you learn the most from people who see things differently than you do. They challenge you to identify and validate the assumptions in your perceptions, and open your eyes to other ways of engaging with the world around you.

To facilitate this learning and growth, we invite students from a myriad of functional, industry and academic backgrounds, nationalities, ethnicities, religious beliefs, and sexual orientations to join our community. When you step into a Duke MBA classroom, you will be awed by the experiences and perspectives that our students bring with them.

The Yale School of Management is fully committed to diversity along many dimensions — racial, ethnic, national, and socioeconomic background; sexual orientation; gender; age; veteran status; religious belief; thought and opinion; professional aspirations; and more. Outside the classroom, our small community is engaged, supportive, and involved; in class, our integrated MBA curriculum model presents business concepts in a multidisciplinary context that uniquely addresses the problems confronted by today's diverse global workforce.

Penn State has long demonstrated a commitment to diversity and equity that is deeply rooted in both our historic mission and our philosophy of higher education. At The Smeal College of Business we focus on enhancing a sense of community that welcomes, celebrates, and promotes diversity among all our members. Ensuring diversity of every kind is an integral part of our culture, climate, and curriculum.
