We're really excited about all of the case writing activity that's been going on here at GBSN in 2012. Recently, GBSN member school Chandaria School of Business finalized twelve new case studies in Kenyan firms for a new Agribusiness certificate program they launched in January. Through their partnership with GBSN, international mentors worked side-by-side with their Kenyan colleagues to develop these new cases, all focused on firms working across the agribusiness value chain.
Agribusiness isn't the only sector that we're involved in. Next week I will be traveling to Ghana and South Africa to work with a team of MBA students from member school UCLA Anderson School of Business to create four new case studies for health management programs. The students will have the benefit of local faculty and international case mentors to guide them along the way and when the cases are complete, GBSN will make them available across the network for anyone interested in incorporating an African perspective into their health management training.
Lastly, GBSN is proud to be continuing its work in support of MSMEs in Kenya through a case writing and training program with three business schools and multiple training institutes across Nairobi. Lots of good things happening within the GBSN network, let us know if you are interested in learning more!
