This semester our University is offering a new program to international students called CERTIFICATE IN BUSINESS IN EMERGING MARKETS (CBEM). This program focuses on the environment for doing business in an emerging country and it is concentrated in the Latin-American reality. The program will help students to understand the differences between leadership styles and management styles, discover business opportunities, learn about the financial environment and the risks related to the decision making process, and how to develop a marketing project for the Latin American market.
Participants come from Austria (J. Kepler Univ.), France (Clermont BS), Peru (U. ESAN) and USA (Penn State Univ.).
The students from Austria and Peru are also part of the Global Program Agreement and had a prior stay in Shanghai and in Linz in 2015.
On March the 9th, our University welcomed new 27 international students. They come from Universities in France, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland, Norway, and Canada. This semester our students came from Cologne University – Germany, NHH Norwegian School of Economics – Norway and Vienna University of Economics and Business – Austria. Students are given the opportunity to choose between different subjects offered in English related to their study fields.
Hernan Castro, student from the Organizational Phycology Major at Universidad Esan shared with us about the STAR Association’s Consulting Group he currently forms part of: “On October 2015, I was admitted into the STAR Association’s Consulting Group from the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. The Consulting Group is formed by Master and Undergraduate students. Its main goal every year is to perform research projects in emerging markets. Peru was elected this year as the focus of study for the projects. The group mission is to formulate research services (new markets entry strategies, value chain analysis, between others) for Dutch companies interested in expanding their businesses in Peru.”
FAB LAB ESAN has almost two years from its inauguration and is focusing on encouraging students to create and formulate new research and business ideas. It is a member of the FAB LAB Network initiated by the Center for Bits and Atoms from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and it is coordinated by the Fab Foundation. It offers the possibility for international students to participate in tailor made projects. Last year, students from Penn State University had the opportunity to participate in a design thinking program that encouraged new innovative solutions for improving the houses’ conditions in low income areas in Lima. There also exist internship opportunities available for international undergraduate students that want to work with the FAB LAB team having the chance to expand their knowledge in digital production development.
