I definitely think that the core academic curricumulum of the Masters in Management does not give a complete picture of all the learning possibilities that the school offers. I will try to give some examples of extracurricular activities in which current MiM students are involved: - For those interested in consulting, the Socially Responsible Business conducts some pro bono consulting projects in which MiMs are much more than welcome to participate.
