BOSTON, July 21, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ --
- Students at Hult's campuses in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai and Shanghai get the chance to be consultants for Fortune 500 companies
- Verizon, Natura, Sherwin Williams, Levi's, 3M, Emirates NBD and OLPC among the big names taking part
Several Fortune 500 firms, which attract some of the brightest minds in business, will be setting Hult International Business School students specific 'challenges' that help to foster important skills such as identifying growth opportunities in emerging markets, and creating innovative business models that are fit for the future.
Hult's partnership with these world-leading companies is an important aspect of its unique series of 'Action Projects', which put an emphasis on learning outside of the classroom. Through Learning, Experience and Action Projects (also known as Hult's LEAP method), students are able to apply skills they learn in the classroom to everyday business issues, emerging from their studies as dynamic and work-ready job candidates.
Michael Perman, Senior Director, Global Marketing for Levi's said: "Tapping into a pool of fresh talent with experience in the emerging markets combined with the competition and collaboration between multiple teams is leading to a number of interesting concepts for us."
Welcoming the launch of the new student challenges, Henrik Totterman, Dean of Hult's Boston campus, said: "We know how important practical work experience is to recruiters. That's why we're delighted that our Action Projects are now giving students an opportunity to work with some of the biggest companies out there."
Hult students are set the real puzzle of developing breakthrough innovations for services markets in India; redefining how social behaviors, mobility, and new technologies can impact a company's business model; and determining the potential market size for healthcare products.
