I travel to Bangkok each year to supervise 20 lucky (and talented) students who work intensively on ‘real’ company projects. It’s a fantastic learning opportunity for all involved (including me). It also highlights something that is coming through in my current research – that hands-on experience matters in terms of how managers frame the very complex decisions they confront in international arenas (You’ll see more on this in coming months on the blog).
So, you could say I’m ‘shaping the minds’ of future business leaders! Alarming I know.
Here’s some more on what we were doing in Bangkok (a story I wrote for the Aust-Thai Chamber of Commerce magazine – see pages 5-9) – just click on the picture:
