5.美國波士頓一個大賣場裡,忙著採買的媽媽們被哈佛學生攔住,問她們平常用什麼樣的肥皂。原來是學生正在幫忙推銷巴西一家肥皂廠的產品。哈佛商學院學生們以往在課堂上,和教授們以某一企業為對象,作「個案研究」探討。現在商學院要求學生們實際投入商業戰場,學生甚至有可能被派到某個開發中國家,直接籌辦一家新的公司。這就是哈佛商學院的新方向,「從實戰中學習」,新的教學策略如果成功,將成為全球企管教育新典範。

Housewives busy shopping at a shopping mall in Boston are interrupted by students from the Harvard University through the following inquiry: “what is the kind of soap you use in your daily life?” It turns out that these students are helping a Brazil soap factory to promote their merchandises. In the past, referred to as the ‘case study,’ the Harvard Business School’s students discussed an enterprise with the professors in the class. At the present, however, the Harvard Business School asks its students to practically be involved in the business battlefield; they can even be sent to the developing countries to directly organize a new company. This is the new form of education devised by the Harvard Business School: Learning by doing. If this new method works, it will be the pioneering new model for the education in business management worldwide.
