Each week the student teams make decisions relating to research and development, product development, operations, pricing and marketing, corporate social responsibility, and financing of a digital camera company and their judged based on the quality of their work.
According to Professor Roberta Harris, the King students have benefitted from their Monroe ‘real world’ education. “Our students are encouraged to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom to these real situations,” she said. “As a result, they’re better able to analyze the issues involved and solve them effectively. Of course, this will eventually apply to their performance after they graduate from Monroe, too.”
The GLO-Bus author team was enthusiastic about the King students, as well. In an email to Dr. Harris they wrote, “You should be quite proud of your students for such an excellent performance — a performance that reflects quite well on you and the caliber of instruction that students are receiving in your course.”
Members of Monroe’s Company D, Natalia Cerches, Ana Dorogan and Doris Billa, also finished among the best in the nation.
As a result of the King Graduate School’s success, the students will participate in an international GLO-BUS competition later this spring.
