Bentley Executive Education hosted a group of 16 managers and executives from Stellenbosch University in South Africa for a one-week executive education study trip focusing on socially responsible business management practice in September 2010. The program included lectures by professors Tony Buono, Joel Deichmann, Raj Sisodia and Chip Wiggins, with visits to three local companies with a history of socially conscious management practice -- Jordan's Furniture, Trillium Investments, and National Grid.
Participants also took part in cultural tours, including a walking tour of Harvard and Cambridge, and a duck tour of Boston with Bentley graduate students. Observes Executive Education Director Debra Kennedy: "We received excellent feedback from participants. We hope to host this group again next year, and facilitate similar programs or other international groups during the spring and summer."
