For the 2010 GIM community service project, the 6th generation "Perseverance" positively impacted the children of migrant workers through improving their English language abilities and tutoring them to pass their middle school entrance examinations.
The MBADiversity Organization (abbreviated MBADiversity) is the pre-MBA global preparation and fellowship program for positive change agents. The MBADiversity Global Immersion Module (GIM) is the international module that fosters global awareness. GIM will strengthen your leadership development, service and global awareness acumen.
GLOBAL IMMERSION MODULE (GIM) - Expand your global horizons.
As of July 2012, MBADiversity's Professional Development Program and Fall Retreat is a pre-requisite for our Global Immersion Module.
Those selected to participate in GIM will travel to another country for approximately two weeks and participate in an international internship opportunity, faith-based community service and cross-cultural fellowship. The program allows pre-MBA, current MBA, and alumni MBA students to develop confidence in using their degrees to positively impact education, the marketplace and the global community at large. Although GIM varies from year to year, GIM usually includes a basic foreign language immersion course and cultural activities. Through the integration of Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) methods, our leadership team evolves the program each year to ensure we are functioning at optimal levels of innovation and quality that the new global business landscape demands.
FORTIFY YOUR GLOBAL EXPERIENCE
Depending on the country, GIM participants will usually have the opportunity to intern in functional areas including:
- Business Development
IMPACTING THE COMMUNITY
Each GIM participant will complete a community service project as it will be another way for participants to impact.
INVEST IN YOUR GLOBAL ACUMEN
The GIM Application process includes the completion of our Professional Development Program and an interview with our leadership at our Fall Retreat.
Those chosen to participate in GIM will fulfill "The 3 C's"- Capability, Collaboration and Character" by demonstrating a commitment to The MBADiversity Organization and international relations. Applicants must also explain how they are positive change agents within society. We select 10-20 Global Fellows a year.
