My best memory in the classroom was the feeling of excitement during the third day of class when I–and the students–both realized we were understanding each other and learning together. I could almost see the lightbulbs go off in their heads. My second best memory was discussing a case involving cross-cultural negotiations and realizing that the 45 students were from 22 different countries. Here, people from almost every continent could definitively discuss how people from their own country negotiated distinctly from those in other countries. For me, as an experienced business school professor who has had the privilege to teach in other very fine and prestigious schools, my time in the IMBA at IE is always very special.
