Culturally immersive programmes for Asian leaders
The two institutions hope that the milestone
collaboration will give students ample opportunities to develop cultural fluency
for effective leadership, and that it will facilitate greater student access to
international networks and expertise in different business specialties in the
region. SolBridge's undergraduate courses, which are accredited by AACSB, the
Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, already integrate a
strong knowledge of Asian
economies and their evolving influence on the rest of the world, with in-depth
exposure to Korean, Japanese or Chinese languages as part of their curriculum.
already hosts students from over 50 nationalities, and with their extensive network
of university partners from the UK and Australia, and corporate partners from
the region, they will serve as an effective platform for students of both
institutions to gain global perspectives while interacting, studying and
interning together. We have sought to participate in and support international
activities that will help in the creation of a fortified community of leaders
in Asia--and are glad our newfound partners in PSB Academy subscribe to similar
progressive models of education that would encourage mutually productive
learning and help students develop a deep appreciation for cultural diversity,"
says John E. Endicott, President, SolBridge International School of Business.
Preparing graduates for careers beyond borders
As part of the MoU, PSB
Academy will also offer career support services to all visiting students from
SolBridge, and South Korean students will be provided further job placement
services with the Academy's network of corporate partners, through the
Academy's Student Affairs team.
"We appreciate the
extraordinary dynamism and creativity that can only stem from a diverse student
community which is built on different strengths and varied skills. SolBridge,
though a young institution like us, have earned a reputation for excellence in
nurturing highly adaptable and innovative individuals because they have
nurtured that culture of inclusiveness that is so important in leaders today.
We are excited about the possibilities for our schools to work together in
driving deeper collaboration in Asia as our graduates go out to lead as global
citizens," says Derrick Chang, CEO, PSB Academy.
