Going Global For An MBA

The following article is one of these PR articles that tell a story like it's the hottest thing going, but it's really just a creative sales pitch. The article is merely getting people to consider non-U.S. based Business Schools in a creative way. Let's be honest here. The diversity of an MBA class is extremely important today. Quite a few European and Asian schools are struggling in this area.... BIG time. It's getting better, but it's still one of the biggest problems these schools have. For example... If you look at any of India's MBA classes, you'll see practically 95% Indians-if not more. From this picture, you can clearly see the lack of ethnic diversity. Bharani commented on the visit by President Bush a while back and posted a picture o himself and his peers at ISB. If you're from ISB, please know that I consider ISB a great school. I'm just pointing out the obvious guys. No offense meant.

I do like some insights that the writers reported regarding INSEAD:

INSEAD accepts only students who speak one language fluently in addition to English and requires them to learn a third language before they graduate. That tends to weed out the provincials. INSEAD is one of several schools that operate on the philosophy that too much student hand-holding can be a bad thing. After all, as globe-trotting executives the students will have to fend for themselves. "We try to help. But we believe this is part of your training," says INSEAD Dean Gabriel Hawawini.

Soon the new MBA students at RSM Erasmus University in Rotterdam would be hunched over textbooks for their finance and marketing courses, but first it was time to pound on a goatskin stretched across a hollow piece of wood. That's part of the orientation for RSM's 96 incoming international MBA students, most from outside the Netherlands, to help them get used to crossing cultural barriers and working together as teams. Their goal: learn the art of Sewa-style African drumming -- in a day. Under the tutelage of instructors from Sewa Beats, a Swiss company that specializes in corporate drumming sessions, the students became passable tribal drummers by nightfall, performing complicated Mandinka rhythms in groups and, in the judgment of one observer, rocking the house.
