Hult International Business School-the world's only truly global business school-today celebrated the grand opening of its fifth campus located in San Francisco with special guest speaker Steve Wozniak, founder of Apple.
Hult, based in Boston, has since 2007 established campuses in the world's leading economic centers-London, Dubai and Shanghai. The newest San Francisco location will be a strategic resource for the School and an opportunity for its students to interact and network in one of the world's most dynamic cities. Hult's presence in San Francisco will also be a valuable source for companies in the Bay Area looking to recruit employees with global business experience. With experienced emerging business leaders from over 80 nations, Hult will provide companies the opportunity to recruit talented students from all over the world without ever leaving San Francisco.
"We are thrilled to be celebrating the opening of our San Francisco campus. We see this as a fantastic opportunity for our students to study in a city which is home to some of the world's most innovative and creative business minds, and at the same time have access to some of the world's most attractive career opportunities." said Dr Stephen Hodges, Hult President.
Recognizing the Bay Area as the global hub for innovativon and entrepreneurship in industries such as green techonology, medicine and IT, Hult's presence will enable the School to further develop its innovative business education-a cornerstone of Hult's culture. Last week Hult announced the Hult Global Case Challenge (HGCC) at the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting. Exemplifying Hult's dedication to practical business education and innovation, the HGCC will host over 100 teams from top business schools competing to solve a genuine problem facing a non-profit organization. Hult will donate US $1 million to implement the winning student team's solution. For further information about HGCC visit: www.hultglobalcasechallenge.com
