It’s amazing for those of us who have been involved since the early years of GSSE to hear that Cohort 8 is graduating already. C8 returned this fall from their practicum work on 4 continents, working in areas from healthcare to energy, to early childhood education and supply chain redesign. They worked with well-known organizations such as Partners in Health in Malawi, to grassroots organizations such as DESCO in Peru. As always, students learned how to apply business tools in the field, conduct research in difficult conditions, build relationships, and test hypotheses about their ventures’ key elements. They are now in the midst of taking what they learned to determine what they will do post-graduation.
