- As top-ranked business schools race to expand their international presence, Hult has already established a global network of campuses across 4 continents.
BOSTON, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hult has long been attracting students from around the world, reflecting the diversity of an increasingly global workforce. A recent article argued that for a business school to be truly global, it should have interconnected campuses in the world's three main economic regions – the Americas, Asia and Europe. Hult, with campuses in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai and Shanghai (plus a rotation center in Sao Paulo), certainly meets this criteria.
But it isn't just the campus location that counts; it's also how much students hailing from over 135 countries can learn from each other about doing business in international markets. At Hult, local knowledge is brought into the classroom and students are encouraged to work with local companies and NGOs on experiential Action Projects to solve an innovation or growth challenge. In fact, the entire curriculum is built around sharing ideas and concepts internationally, with Hult's Global Rotation Program students are encouraged to move around, and experience the school's global campus network.
In a report published last year, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business warned that for many business schools, 'globally ready' faculty members are in short supply. Many of Hult's faculty members, on the other hand, have British, American, and emerging market expertise and travel frequently between campuses, taking time to teach students about the cultural, legal, and economic differences between different regions.
Student's readiness to embrace educational diversity is increasingly popular. Hult's more than 2,400 students speak more than 100 languages, and over 34% of students are trilingual. More than 20% of students hail from emerging BRIC economies, and 40% of the students are female. The mobility of Hult's students is also significant, with 60% finding work outside of their country of origin after graduation.
"Thanks to our five global campuses and our internationally minded faculty, we've been able to connect our students with a world of opportunities," said Hult President Dr Stephen Hodges. "Our faculty members represent more than 30 nationalities, and over 70% have an industry background in international markets. It's that kind of diversity that puts us far ahead of other business schools and prepares our students for employment in the global workforce."
