Global Immersion: Destination–Johannesburg!  [#permalink]

FROM News Penn State: Global Immersion: Destination–Johannesburg!
The concept of Ubuntu—“I am; because of you”*—is a central guiding principle of South African culture. In early March, I was able to experience Ubuntu firsthand as staff leader for the Penn State Smeal MBA Johannesburg Global Immersion trip, and I don’t think I’m alone in saying it was life changing.

Ubuntu pays respect to leaders, such as Nelson Mandela, and the sacrifices they made for their country and their people. This spirit is also reflected in the way South Africans conduct business with each other and with the world. Their humbleness and gratitude were apparent in every Penn State interaction throughout a week of amazing experiences.

As I set out to write a blog post about my Global Immersion journey, I wanted to be certain to capture that spirit of Ubuntu. It came through in sessions with established companies like Coca-Cola, EY, and Ogilvy & Mather. It came through in meetings with entrepreneurs like those from New Africa Petroleum and The Soweto Hotel. It came through in visits to cultural destinations like the Apartheid Museum, the Hector Pieterson Memorial and the Nelson Mandela Centre for Memory. Just a few of many highlights:

  • Halfway around the world, the Penn State bond and spirit was still strong! We connected with two alumni from Penn State, one from the Smeal MBA program and one from the Penn State Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management Program, and heard their amazing stories of success, sacrifice, prosperity, and hard work. We were invited into their world and lives with open arms, and they—busy executives—readily took time to speak to every student who wanted to connect with them personally.
  • Our tour guide was a masterful storyteller and a man who lived through the rise and fall of apartheid. He led us through Soweto, one of the poorest townships in Johannesburg, and introduced us (in Freedom Square), to a trio of teenaged boy singers who had requested to perform for his visitors from Penn State. The group, from Kliptown, sent chills down our spines with a rendition of the South African national anthem.
  • We visited the Henley Business School and met participants in the Food Lovers Market Leadership Development Program. One young man we met with told us his story of growing up with no shoes. He asked if he could be in our picture with the Nittany Lion mascot, and asked if maybe he could learn more about going to Penn State someday. We talked of our daily lives over a traditional South African lunch.
Very much like our iconic “WE ARE…PENN STATE!” cheer, Ubuntu helps to define the South African experience and aspires to bring very diverse groups of people together as one. While it was fascinating to hear about global strategy, product marketing, and how goods move through the continent, it was the many personal connections we built and strengthened in South Africa that made the journey so special and unique. And, to experience it with our students, and learn alongside of them was simply the opportunity of a lifetime for me.

(*The definition of Ubuntu has been cited in many places and varies slightly from source to source. For additional information please see this TED Talk by Boyd Varty, and the accompanying article, as a helpful starting point: http://blog.ted.com/further-reading-on-ubuntu/). The quote I have used above is taken from here).
