USIU-Africa's Executive MBA Students hosted by the SolBridge International School of Business
By SolBridge University
Last week, SolBridge International School of Business, Woosong University hosted a cohort of Executive MBA students from USIU-Africa for a 4-day global business executive training and tour. The participants composed of two cohorts (MBA Global Business Management and Health Leadership & Management) included CEOs, medical doctors, HR practitioners, engineers, and consultants in healthcare, telecommunications, and academia.
Participants had an engaging experience in lectures on East Asian Development and implications for emerging economies, the impact of technology on Corporate Social Responsibility, and a practical session on cross-cultural business negotiation that provided insights into the process of two parties from different backgrounds reaching an agreement.
Additionally, the health and leadership cohort received insights into Korea’s health care information systems, policies, and processes. The group had a virtual outpatient tour of the Seoul National University Hospital Bundang Campus and had the opportunity to witness how quickly a patient can see a cardiologist using automated systems, from the point of registration to using the pharmacy app.
Additionally, the group was enlightened on the strategies used in Korea to curb the spreading of COVID-19 in its early stages. The lectures helped participants understand Korea’s healthcare landscape and how the country has successfully managed the COVID-19 pandemic. SolBridge University looks forward to hosting the students at a physical visit once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
