The students in Global Business are currently working hard on their first Business Challenge. 29 students are working in 9 teams on challenges from Metal Era, Ameriprise, United Heartland, GE Healthcare, Harley Davidson, Moore Construction, the Medical College of Wisconsin, Concurrency, and the Elmbrook School District. Now in about our third week of work on these projects, student groups have met with representatives from their companies, engaged in various kinds of research, and defined problem statements with their sponsors. Now it's on to providing great solutions for the clients. Just before Thanksgiving, our students were fortunate to be able to hear Vivek Bhatt, the chief technology officer for GE Healthcare, speak on the future of digitalization in business. Students were able to engage with some truly thought-provoking concepts about their futures. On November 28th, a number of our students will travel to Wisconsin Hills Middle School to provide students there with feedback on LAUNCH-type projects the kids there have been pursuing. Busy times in Global Business!
