THE IESE ELECTIVE WITH 40 FT MBA STUDENTS HELPED TO EDUCATE TECHNOLOGY AS PART OF THE OFFERING
The course BUILDING Digital Solutions for your Business was offered to FT-MBA students with a clear goal in mind to allow participants to submit a brand new project-idea related to technology and its applications to modern business life. These project-based learning experiments ranged from new start-up ideas to new products or services. A group of 40 FT-MBA students was asked to not only articulate and submit a novel project proposal but also to deliver a prototype or minimal viable product (MVP) of their idea.
The course included workshops on Databases, Mobile UI patterns, basic programming skills and an introduction to Cloud computing. Students were given exclusive access to the Barcelona’s prestigious Mobile World Congress.
The academic challenge with IESEs MBA students was to bridge the gap between business and technology providing an environment that helped to acquire practical skills and experiences. In order to align concepts and methodologies in todays fast moving technological business environment the BUILDING course helped to prepare students to become more eloquent with technology. A significant amount of time and focus during teaching sessions was factored into the overall course syllabus.
The academic team together with a small group of digital mentors “real” IT professionals, provided instant feedback about the submitted project ideas, team collaboration, project/ development phase of the MVP as well as delivery of the final technological solution during a period of 90 days.
TELANTOs project and action-learning platform provided a series of ready-to-use, user-based processes were 1) students were given access to project-creation and -bidding and 2) professors & digital mentors access to idea evaluation and selection processes. Furthermore, all project-related communication including set-up of course milestones were managed through TELANTOs Academic Business Network.
Has been the slogan of La Salle for the most recent time and has left its traces throughout the programmes in the entire university. Together with TELANTO the access to relevant challenges has become even easier and also new formats have been enabled through personal contribution of the TELANTO Team. The example with a local pharmaceutical company is a good example for this collaboration
Working with an ever growing amount of data is a challenge for data scientists as well as any other line of business manager and professional. Dealing with big amounts of data and to make meaningful and more importantly correct decisions has become paramount in todays economic landscape.
The class prepares business students for the work as employee in basically any function, in which decision making is part of the job description. The learning objective is to be able to handle, visualize and understand data for process enablement and decision making.
Together with TELANTO the course was "injected" with challenges from industry with real problems including business data management and related decision making and/or strategic planning, for instance understanding consumer behaviour based on data and make projections on future purchasing decisions.
The role of human resources has become more important over the last decade(s), driven by demographic shifts as well as more focus on the human capital, that drives innovation and growth within the organization. With new technology achievements and the increasing usage of Artificial Intelligence, the challenges for Human Resources don't stop at re-designing work places, flexible work arrangements and full package compensation plans for employees, but a complete redefinition of workforce (employees, contractors, partners, providers, customers, robots) as well as interaction between internal, external and human-machine.
Particularly the international and large enterprise partnership base of TELANTO has detected a plethora of challenges within this space, which needs addressing by young, eager students, motivated to learn new concepts and propose solutions in a creative and innovative manner.
After 90 days of solving corporate (real-world) challenges from small to large enterprises. The ESADE MBA FT Students have concluded their Action Learning Consulting Project (ALCP).
For the first time the ALCP was supported by TELANTOs Academia Business Network solution, that connected student talent with corporate challenges via a collaborative platform, which made project management and communication with fellow students, faculty, coaches and the companies very easy.
Given the pilot character of the usage of the solution, worthy insights were generated from the integration via quantitative and qualitative focus group interviews with participating students.
The most important part however is the satisfaction of the participating students as well as the companies. Herewith few facts:
– There were 12 teams (made up to 4-5 students) solving challenges for 12 companies
– 90% of the companies were satisfied to very satisfied with the end results of the students (reflected based on feedback, notes and final evaluations)
– 90% of students have also reported their satisfaction
Those facts round up another edition of ESADE’s FT MBA ALCP Program, which is awaiting their next one in the autumn semester this year.
The University of Alabama has detected a great need for engineers with a big deal of business sense and has since developed the STEM path to MBAs for the undergraduate engineers to take the next step upon graduation on to a Master of Business Adminstration. This powerful setup is developing a generation of very well equipped talents into the labour market, where they are already highly sought after.
In order to give the program an even higher value, the University of Alabama, more specifically Dr. Rob Morgan, has decided to incorporate real world challenges into the course programs to prepare the students even better for their future as leaders in organizations.
With TELANTO their students have already worked on many different challenges, coming from the Logistics, Supply Chain and Operations, Innovation, Product Development and other lines of businesses and a number of different industries.
