Emmanuel Chao, Tanzania, graduate of the 2009 International Strategy and the Internationalization Laboratory (ORG410/444)
This is a great course that I will advice business students never to miss. As a student I got an opportunity to meet with real companies and discuss with them. This was such a rewarding opportunity where I was able to participate in utilizing my class knowledge and apply it on the problem that real companies face. Interactive sessions with other students, teachers and the business practitioners were a key in enabling me to grow further from a theory to a practical capacity. This was an opportunity for me to get to know business people and establish a relation to a personal level. This program gave me a chance to get to also establish my network. International Strategy and the Internationalization Laboratory for me was an eye opener that gave me a practical understanding on how to business firms can set up ready to face markets. It was exciting experience which provided me with interest in operating my own venture in the future. I could confidently say that this is one of those rare opportunities that you can get from the university as a business student or practitioner. Apart from that, I was able
to obtain a diploma which is quite relevant especially when applying for jobs that requires some form of experience.
