On April 1st, a team of Instituto de Empresa (IE) MBA students joined five other business school teams for the finals of The Global Citizenship Challenge, held on the campus of Thunderbird’s Garvin School of International Management in Phoenix, Arizona. The team, sponsored by PwC & IE Corporate Responsibility Center and IE, competed against 55 teams from top business schools to earn the right to attend the finals, where they placed 3rd. IE was the only non-U.S. school selected for the finals. The Challenge, sponsored by Merck, The X-Prize Foundation, and Net Impact, is the largest global case competition in the world focusing on corporate citizenship, sustainability and international development. The final round question challenged teams to devise a way to facilitate cooperation amongst the private and public sectors in order to achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. The IE team proposed an entrepreneurial approach, whereby a social enterprise would match complementary organizations with opportunities in developing countries and provide services to help maintain the partnerships.
