St. Lucia - Summer 2014
MBA 677 - Risk Management
Gain experience as a “consultant” in an international context through this study abroad program in St. Lucia, a beautiful Caribbean island nation rich in culture and history!
By serving as "consultants," MBA students enrolled in the Risk Management course will provide analysis and advice to various constituencies in St. Lucia. “Clients” will receive three deliverables (an environmental scan, a risk assessment, and a risk management plan) and will provide feedback to teams for assessment purposes.
Students will approach this experiential learning opportunity from the framework that failure to deliver will lead to forfeiture of a consulting fee (hypothetical) and elimination of the possibility of additional business in the future. All interactions with clients and other stakeholders will be conducted in a professional manner conducive to cultivating international partnerships.
Lynchburg College has a long-standing relationship with the St. Lucia Ministry of Education and Culture. Your participation in this program will continue to foster LC’s relationship with St. Lucia, and you will have an enriching experience that reaches far beyond the tourist gaze.
