What our MBA students said about their recent global residency Sept 2010:
1. Did the programme of the last week meet your expectations? Yes / No and why?
Yes and above. A fascinating and stimulating trip
Yes, the programme taught me more about the culture and business model in SA
It exceeded my expectations. I have learnt so much, laughed, experienced en enjoyed
Yes, it exceeded my expectations in all aspects. The course allowed us to experience the cultural richness of SA
Yes, completely – came to understand African diversity in terms of both business-making and cultural. Got both theoretical and practical experience. Furthermore, afforded me to establish my network (first contacts) for better understanding how to penetrate SA/African markets
2. In what way was the programme of value to you?
A greater understanding of the people and cultures of South Africa
The company visit added value to me which is a good example of entrepreneurship in an emerging country
Learning about another culture and has been inspiring and enlightening.
It provided an opportunity to understand how SA is transforming its culture and how companies and individuals have adapted their business models and strategies to meet their own goals and journeys
Starting by the “reality check” of the “township”, that illustrates the African culture and challenges. Will add value and credit to company visits to understand each business models
This tour gave me different way of viewing the world. In addition, getting to know executive students of BATH was also valuable to me
