MBAs explore sustainable business in Vancouver
30 April 2014
As part of the Warwick MBA by full-time study, students have taken a trip to Vancouver to gain exposure to a different business culture.
The visit, part of a new module called ‘Managing in a New World’, not only gave students the chance to gain a broad global perspective on sustainability and green issues but also helped them understand how Vancouver is working to reduce its negative impact on the environment and work more efficiently.
“The trip really added to my MBA experience. We had fantastic lectures, visited some amazing companies and spoke to people with very valuable industry experience,” says John Kerrisk. “Vancouver seemed like the type of place that you could have a good quality of living. If you take some of Vancouver’s spirit and bring it to other parts of the world you could definitely make the world a better place.”
