JPGThe MBA-FSI programme – a specialist MBA for the financial and insurance sector – has become paperless. Instead of bulky folders of case studies and course materials, each participant will now have their own iPad installed with pre-configured applications specially designed for the course. “The bi-weekly modules take place in every corner of the world, so the programme is an ideal test case for the iPad,” explains Programme Manager Jonathan De Grande. “It doesn’t just mean the elimination of paper; it also reduces our ecological footprint by avoiding the unnecessary transport of reading materials.” The iPad also opens the door to more interactive teaching with additional material and video able to be added before, during and after lectures.
