IUBH-International University at Berlin has a richly diverse student body population from around the globe. We identified several opportunity areas to enhance career preparation. Thus, meeting the needs of the school’s diverse cultural environment.

We proposed several solutions to IUBH. These solutions were based on data analysis and MBA-level classroom observations. From there, we were able to propose a solution that would help students better understand and digest course curriculum and content. Thereby increasing internal confidence and giving students stronger skills for success post-graduation.

Our recommendations were welcomed by IUBH. After several rounds of Design Thinking, we aligned on a plan for success. The implementation and performance measurement of this particular project led to the ideation and implementation of How2GetHired.
