Workshops

Historic Model United Nations

What if the United Nations Security Council were around during the break-out of the Second World War? Or the Economic and Social Council in between the World Wars? These are the questions students explore representing different countries in the Historic Model United Nations (MUN). The main emphases for this MUN conference will be on attaining a more profound understanding of historical circumstances and on creative problem solving.

Students will be leave considering how lessons learned from the past can be applied to current conditions and challenges.

Marketing: Launch a Software Product

This workshop offers student teams the hands-on opportunity to dream up their own software product, one that addresses a perceived need in the recreational sports market, and to develop a marketing plan. After a brief introduction, the pre-determined CEOs from each school recruit their teams. The companies will then figure out the questions -- and then the answers -- that need to be addressed. The students will be encouraged to marshal their creative efforts in developing and experimenting with their marketing instincts. Despite moments of frustration, hard work and negotiation, students arrive at the end of the day realizing they have strong marketing instincts.
