The workshop with Arthur D. Little was not only a success, but also set our standards high when it comes to events with the SIMC Corporate Department. The topic discussed was „WHY Strategy?“, and gave our teams an insight to exploring the reasons behind why and how certain companies establish their mission statements. As an exercise we were to then come up with our own SIMC mission statement. We separated into three teams and discussed our personal stories and reasons for applying to this program (i.e. why did we apply, what attracted us to SIMC, the difficult application process, etc.). Then, with all students and the ADL team we formulated our own mission statement for the SIMC Program.

“At SIMC we believe that excellence and innovation within a diverse community drive personal growth and enabling us to shape the future”
