Students from the Middle East and North Africa are busily applying for the Coca-Cola MENA Scholarship Program and a chance to spend several weeks studying Western entrepreneurship at the Kelley School of Business.
Sponsored by Coca-Cola and the U.S. State Department and organized through Kelley’s Institute for International Business, this is the second year for the program, which will bring 100 students together from eight countries for an immersion business program based on Kelley’s curriculum of collaboration and teamwork. Students work in groups to develop and present a business plan.
In the current issue of IU International magazine, directors share the logistics of bringing the students to the United States, where they also visited Washington, D.C., and Coca-Cola headquarters in Atlanta. They also share how the students have stayed in touch to continue to discuss how to “Make Tomorrow Better” in their countries. Many students have taken the business ideas they developed at Kelley and made them a reality, already making a difference in their communities.
