Innovation and Real World Experience in the Classroom

Since this is the first of possibly a few posts, I should take a moment to introduce myself. My name is William Pacheco and I am a part of the April 2011 intake for the IE’s IMBA program. I am originally from the United States, but more specifically, from the state of Florida. I graduated from the University of Florida and worked for 6 years with Accenture then for another 5 years with Pfizer before coming to IE to begin the MBA program and also my fellowship with the International Development team. I cannot say enough about my time here; much has been learned, many friendships have been made and much fun has been had.

The reason for this post however, is to highlight one of the key offerings that I feel has made my time here at IE especially enlightening. While most business schools these days offer case based learning techniques, several courses I have taken during the year have featured simulations that give a student such as me a better feel for what “a day in the life” of a specific career is really like.

ABOUT THE EVENT
In a more complicated and increasingly globalized world, mastering markets is no longer enough. This session will show how companies and their bottom lines are increasingly affected by government policy, changing regulations, activist pressure, and media scrutiny – anywhere in the world and often instantaneously. How can and should companies respond to these growing “nonmarket” pressures? The session will highlight both challenges and opportunities of strategic nonmarket management and leave participants with a fuller picture of the realities of global management in the 21st century.
