What Makes Us Different

MAD Courses opens doors for students to step out into worlds beyond the classroom, enabling them to become more competent, responsible, and empathetic global citizens. Connecting students to local communities and social entrepreneurs, MAD’s programs encourage people to investigate the world, broaden their perspectives, and communicate their ideas in exciting ways. Our approach is highly influenced by EdSteps’ Global Competence Matrices. You can learn more about it here. We define 4 steps:

At the root of effective action is meaningful connection. At our core, we are purposeful connectors. We enable students to explore beyond what they already know by introducing them to social innovators, partner community members, and grassroots movers and shakers who are trying to address some of the most complex issues in the world today.

Connect

At the root of effective action is meaningful connection. At our core, we are purposeful connectors. We enable students to explore beyond what they already know by introducing them to social innovators, partner community members, and grassroots movers and shakers who are trying to address some of the most complex issues in the world today.
Students are able to develop more empathy when they are familiar with the context of what they are trying to examine. Our programs give students the time and tools to explore relevant issues from global, regional, and local perspectives while providing the social, cultural, economic, political, and geographical contexts they need to better understand the problems at hand.

Empathize

We recognize the power of harnessing ideas. When students have an encouraging space to share theirs, they are more able to effectively collaborate with others to achieve a shared objective. We use industry-proven frameworks and models to offer ideation and reflection support to our students so students that they may maximize the tools at their disposal and bring their ideas to life.

Create

With their new understanding — of a local community, a regional organization, or a global issue — students will  collaborate with key stakeholders and with each other to create positive change. We facilitate mindful discourse and intentional engagement so that we can ensure meaningful improvements for our partners

Lea, ESSEC Singapore Business School 🇸🇬
