Team Challenges give students the opportunity to develop as part of a self-aware, highly effective team. They are an invaluable way for a new cohort of students to bond.
Leadership Challenges build on Team Challenges, giving Business School students the opportunity to use skills learnt in the classroom in a real-life environment over a period of time. Splash experts mentor the student management team over the months leading up to the project delivery, allowing the student management team to practice key skills including, stakeholder management, project management, resourcing, planning, fundraising and communications.
Strategic Management Projects
Strategic Management Projects give students the opportunity to work in small teams on a four – eight-week real-life project. Splash sources interesting projects for Business Schools, which could take place anywhere in the world, and have a charity / community impact / Sustainable Development Goals focus. Students will have a strategic impact on an organisation that would otherwise be unable to afford management consultancy services. Work can be supported by a Business School tutor and earn students credits towards their academic courses.
Study / Field trips
Study / Field Trips offer experiential learning expeditions to locations that would otherwise be inaccessible to students. Various activities can be included such as meeting local entrepreneurs, reviewing local business processes, developing business plans and improving infrastructure.
Rapid Response command tasks provide students with a series of challenges / disaster relief scenarios to work through. Every student will have the chance to lead at some point in the day, testing strategic thinking, communication and problem-solving skills. Rapid Response command tasks introduce global issues and Sustainable Development Goals, helping students understand how to contribute to society and make a difference.
In addition to these projects, Splash Projects also provide several services, which can be bolted on to our projects or purchased separately.
Innovative experiential learning
Our projects integrate innovative experiential learning into Business School programmes and are ideal for students on MBA/MIM and other business programmes or as part of Executive Education.
With years of proven experience working with world-class business schools, our projects are bespoke to each client and tailored to the curriculum following consultation with your faculty.
Each project will challenge students regardless of age or experience and provide a demanding but fun environment to challenge each cohort, and individual, beyond their perceived limits.
Participants learn invaluable team, leadership and project management skills while improving their self-confidence and personal effectiveness. The experience is life-changing, enabling participants to put into practice the learning as part of their studies.
Splash Projects has continued to run Covid-safe programmes during the pandemic. Our work with MBA students at IE Business School in Madrid in 2020 (link to long case study TBC) demonstrated first-hand the students’ desire to move away from online learning and reconnect physically with their fellow students and come together to make a real difference within their local community.
These real-life challenges provide a platform to take students out of their comfort zones and into environments where students can:
