This week I have had the pleasure of hosting students from Rome studying for an MA in management and corporate responsibility. They have been in London on a field trip, visiting organisations that have had the generosity of spirit to meet them, and talking about the challenges of making management and corporate responsibility a reality.
It is refreshing not only that they chose to come out of the classroom to meet the people living the reality of modern business, but also that the people in the organisations would be open to spending time with them and being frank about their challenges.
If they had remained in the classroom and simply read an online edition of The Financial Times I wonder if they would have abandoned all hope and asked for their money back!
