Take the Challenge

Description

At Hult, you'll learn through experience. The Virtual Challenge emphasizes the learning environment at Hult and gives an insight into the entrepreneurial management approach to survive and succeed in times of disruption. Engage in a team project, develop new ideas, and exchange your knowledge with others.

What will you learn?

The complex nature of innovation requires the development of adaptive systems as well as agility in designing impactful interventions:

  1. Use the design thinking framework and principles.
  2. Create new disruptive value opportunities.
  3. Reframe future value-based objectives specifically around stakeholders.
  4. Develop your creativity confidence.

The challenge will be hosted on two days within a week. On the first day, you will get the information about the challenge and you will be allocated to a team. After the first day, you will have one week to work in the team on the challenge. You will be able to pitch your ideas on Day 2 and the winning teams will be announced.

More information on the challenge soon follows.

We are available to guide you on the project and give answers to questions you might have.

About Professor Daniel Rukare

Daniel is a Professor of Entrepreneurship at Hult International Business School, a lecturer at Oxford Cherwell Valley College-Oxford Brookes University, business Lecturer- Swansea Metropolitan University, commercial experience at FedEx and DHL, and an entrepreneur who runs two private businesses in consulting and ranching.

His teaching philosophy is a rounded teaching approach; especially when delivering on Entrepreneurship modules. His emphasis is on establishing an environment that allows the students to be able to challenge the norms and status quo. In so doing, it creates an enriched environment where students are empowered as well as expected to carry out independent research. His initial sessions are designed to rationalize complex theoretical concepts through the depiction and portrayal of practical aspects, hence enabling the foundation for incremental rigor and complexity while acknowledging the wide student diversity.

The use of simulations, case studies, and guest lectures supports his approach and provides an invaluable perspective on how things are done by industry. It balances three major contentions; (knowledge transfer, rigor, and resourcefulness). The approach embeds a variety of traditional and creative pedagogical approaches that include but not limited to: Open-ended instruction; Discovery learning; Co-operative learning; Case studies and peer teaching.
