Hult International Business School SIP Report - View Report

Hult's first Sharing Information on Progress Report highlights its commitment to educating globally responsible leaders for the 21st Century. Its contents exemplify the school's unique LEAP pedagogy which combines traditional methods of learning with action-oriented, experiential programs that encourage students to see responsible business practices as core to good business.

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

Hult International Business School has become the most international business school in the world. The school has grown from its single Boston location to a global network of campuses including London, Dubai, Shanghai and San Francisco.

Hult’s very design – with its unique five campus network, student rotation program and emphasis on recruiting students from around the world – is intended to develop leaders who understand – at both the broadest and deepest level possible—the challenges of working in multicultural, truly global environments.

Hult launched its Master of Social Entrepreneurship in London in 2011, and will be introducing it in San Francisco for the 2012-2013 academic year. This program is entirely consistent with the UN Global Compact Principles and supportive of the UN Eight Millennium Development Goals to eradicate poverty by 2015.

The Hult Global Case Challenge, in cooperation with the Clinton Global Initiative, has become the largest crowd-sourcing platform for social good. Students from more than 4,000 institutions participate each year to address a major social challenge.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

Hult is a proponent of active vs. passive learning, and focuses on engaging students through incorporating case studies and technology in the classroom. Hult's unique pedagogy – LEAP (Learn, Experience, Action Project) – encourages learning by doing and exposes students directly to the economic, environmental and social challenges faced by organizations today by inviting outside speakers to share experiences and present real dilemmas within their classes.

Hult's Action Project assigns students to teams to work on strategic issues posed by senior managers from global corporations (e.g. Johnson Controls) and not-for-profit organizations (e.g. Red Cross). Students learn firsthand how to apply both business practices and ethical principles, and think about the unintended consequences and externalities of their decisions.
