Global MBA students to present Innovation for Humanity projects

The charter class of the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School Global MBA program will present the results of its inaugural Innovation for Humanity project from 12:30 to 4 p.m. on Friday, March 4, at the school’s campus in Harbor East.

Touted by Forbes magazine as one of the “10 most innovative business school classes” of 2010, Innovation for Humanity was designed to develop agile and conscientious business leaders who can propose innovative solutions to society’s most pressing needs while faced with limited resources in emerging markets. The project created the opportunity for Global MBA student teams to gain these skills and perspectives by working with local entrepreneurs in India, Kenya, Peru or Rwanda on projects focused on health, energy and the environment.

Johns Hopkins alumni, staff and students are invited to discover the lessons learned as selected teams present the results of their experiences. RSVP to Dan Sheats at
dansheats@jhu.edu for full information and directions. A reception for presenters and guests will follow the presentation.
