WDI IMPACT REPORT 2017: Improving Business Education in the Philippines
This WDI Impact Report, entitled “Improving Business Education in the Philippines,” examines the Institute’s contributions to the five-year STRIDE project which was focused on strengthening the science, technology, research and innovation capacity on the island nation. In 2013 the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) launched the Science, Technology, Research and Innovation for Development (STRIDE) program in the Philippines through its implementing partner RTI International. As part of the STRIDE project, WDI was asked to provide academic support for faculty from dozens of Philippine universities. WDI designed and delivered four workshops to teach over 130 professors how to write and teach business case studies while also helping faculty increase engagement with local industries and companies.
