For the past few years we’ve partnered with UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School to provide their MBA students with immersive, global travel opportunities in unique destinations to learn about different cultures and witness firsthand how business is conducted in international markets. These opportunities help the students better understand cultural sensitivities, and prepare them to lead international teams.
Amid the pandemic, Kenan-Flagler was not willing to give up on such global experiences, which truly set the school and the students apart, and we were excited to work with our partners to help develop an impactful virtual experience.
Together, Terraficionados and Kenan-Flagler, developed a Virtual Global Immersion Experience (VGIE) to study the themes of innovation and entrepreneurship in Russia and Estonia. The development of the VGIE required a lot of creativity and innovation to make sure that the program was just as effective and impactful as the in-person global experience.
