My favorite experience at Marshall so far
Every Marshall student engages in exciting, real-world business simulations at the Experiential Learning Center, or the ELC as we call it. The ELC is founded on the following principle:
I hear and I forget…
I see and I remember…
I do and I understand.
— Chinese proverb
At this unique facility, I have had the opportunity to participate in a sub-Arctic team survival mission, run a mock company meeting as a Board President, create a marketing campaign for a new App launch, and more. All of these scenarios apply skills such as teamwork, group decision-making, problem solving, and critical thinking in an innovative and interactive way unlike anything I have ever done before. And immediately after each simulation, we watch video recordings of our behavior (captured by the ELC’s state-of-the-art technology) and reflect back on our actions and their implications in the real world. My time spent in the ELC learning by doing has definitely been my favorite experience at Marshall so far.
