Second-year MBA Student
If there is one thing the GLOBASE program has always been able to pride itself on (other than selecting amazing, first-class leadership teams), it’s picking the right clients. I hesitate to rank the importance of each GLOBASE component, but finding the right clients and projects for our students is high on the list. Going into the process we all had our personal criteria for selecting clients. I felt that my ideal client needed an open mind and strong interpersonal communication skills; Ed wanted his client to have a big enough business to provide our students with significant, meaningful projects. However, we all agreed that it would be best to ask our students what they wanted in a client and project.
To close, I can say with complete confidence that we’ve selected a fine group of projects and clients for our students. We’ve most certainly continued the proud GLOBASE tradition of finding the best partners for our students. Have we done better than previous leadership teams? Only time will tell…and yes, we have done better.
