Blog roundup: Kelley in Oxford, surviving I-Core, empowering entrepreneurs in emerging countries

Summer I-Core survivors.
Just because it's summer, it doesn't mean we slow down much at the Kelley School.

Aside from the major construction project we have going on, we have students studying across the pond, and we've hosted students and executives in Bloomington from across the country and on the other side of the world.

On the Undergrad blog, you can follow 25 students through our three-week Kelley in Oxford program as they learn about cross-cultural management.

We also had more than 200 students brave the accelerated Summer I-Core program, earning the coveted I-Core Survivor T-shirt. Student blogger Katharine Finn captures the challenges and benefits of taking the required integrated core classes during the summer.

Over on the IU Inc. blog, where George Vlahakis writes about the Kelley School and other major IU programs, see how the Coca-Cola company, the U.S. State Department and the Kelley School came together to create the Global Business Initiative, a month-long entrepreneurship program for students in the Middle East and North Africa that left 100 students from emerging countries with hope and new business skills.
