Protecting future students from spoilers

Posted by Waqas Mir on Wednesday, May 08, 2019 | Reading time: 2 min.

Spoilers are the absolute worst. This we know. Whether it’s the friend who accidentally blurts out the ending of a great book, the film review that diligently covers every twist and turn of the storyline, or the student who shares coursework information with subsequent cohorts, spoilers can annoy and infuriate. What they take from us can never be returned: our honest, unfiltered and unprepared response to a piece of creative work.

At the Mikkeli Campus of Aalto University in Finland, students in the final phase of coursework for their BScBA degree participated in CESIM Global Challenge during the spring capstone course (all will go on exchange the upcoming autumn). This course combines finance and strategy decisions with close examination of aspects of the 'human dimensions' of students' future workplaces; a combination that has been central to each iteration since its first use in 2015. At all times participants are working, in parallel, on two questions: “What are our options for achieving the best possible return to shareholders?” and “How do we establish - and maintain - effective group dynamics within our team?”
