Sasin moves start
date, launches first Skills & Values module
As a result of
the ongoing global pandemic, Sasin School of Management moved the start date
for all of its 2020 degree programs from the end of April to the first week of
August. This year, Sasin’s programs will start with the Sasin Skills &
Values Module—an essential, 9-credit foundational program for incoming students.
This innovative program will cover the basics of Accounting, Effective
Presentations, Entrepreneurship, Quantitative Analysis, Sustainability,
Leadership, Values, and Ethics, and Consulting and Problem-Solving, and will
give students an opportunity to reflect on their own motivations and goals.
The module will
include an online component in July with a series of video materials, readings,
and self-assessment quizzes, created especially for Sasin by leading global
educators. Then from August 8-15, Sasin’s new students will participate in a week-long
program of intensive, face-to-face activities that will continue what they've
learned in the online courses. By focusing on the fundamentals of modern
business, this foundational Sasin experience will help students develop and
change their thinking about work, business, and the meaning of success in these
disruptive and uncertain times.
