Hult International Business School (http://www.hult.edu) has completed a global roll out of iPads with customized software to over 1,600 MBA, Executive MBA, Master students and faculty, spanning five campuses in three continents.
Every incoming graduate student at Hult received an iPad on campus in the fall of 2011. Customized training sessions were created for students and faculty at Hult’s five campus locations in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai and Shanghai. Students were trained on Pages, Numbers and Keynote apps, and the use of the iPad to enhance learning and productivity in the classroom.
In the first quarter of 2012, the school will be rolling out a series of premium apps to its Hult network. This will feature Hult’s custom designed iHult app, digitizing the student experience. It will include features like campus news, a professor directory, campus maps and student events.
The Hult Reader app will give students easy access and reference to course reading materials, cutting down paper consumption, says Dr. Stephen Hodges, president of Hult International Business School. Digital textbooks, from leading companies such as Inkling, are already being used on Hult’s campuses and have seen widespread adoption among faculty and students.
Hult is the world’s most international business school with campuses in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, and Shanghai. The school offers a range of business-focused programs.
