No Laptop Left Behind

Educators and their benefactors might ponder what good computers are when students can’t read what’s on the screen. “Imagine a world where even the poorest of children have access to a computer—the poverty gap that could be reduced, the problems that could be solved and the wealth of knowledge that could be shared!” Jennifer Gracie of Hult International Business School notes. “In March, 2010 One Laptop per Child (OLPC) in partnership with Hult International Business School, and the Center for Innovation, Excellence and Leadership (IXL Center) will play host to top MBA and university students from across the globe who will compete simultaneously in four locations (Boston, London, Dubai and Shanghai) at the inaugural Global Case Challenge (GCC).”

“The Global Case Challenge compliments the renowned Action Learning Project, a cornerstone of Hult’s MBA program where teams compete to solve a real-world problem and present solutions to top executives of leading global companies such as IBM, Philips Healthcare, Emirates Bank, and BAE Systems.”
