Learning projects and company visits
Active Learning Projects
The Active Learning Projects provide opportunities for students to combine prior knowledge and experience with classroom learning and apply it in an active business setting. An ALP client is provided to the student teams and the project focuses on helping a firm diagnose and resolve a critical business problem. The teams are guided by a faculty member to provide the most beneficial hands-on experience possible.
Our students visit companies while in-residency. These visits include a tour of the facilities and an interactive discussion with senior management. Companies are chosen to reflect core concepts within the curriculum and/or key industries of the country visited. This approach gives additional context to the learning in the program and insights into the challenges faced by managers around the world. Companies visited include Bao Steel, American Axle, Boeing, Kidzana, Amazon, Subaru, Cook Biotech, Codelco, Salesforce, Concha y Toro, Philips, and many more.
