|The challenging tests for the participants|
As a part of the integration program for the MBA students from the University´s Business School, a second group of students received a workshop of integration in the Center of Excellence of this house of studies.
“The ropes technique was used”, explained Carla de Hess, director of the Center.
The facilities of ropes of the Center of Excellence are in a hill behind the Ludwig von Mises Library, where the
Arboretum of the UFM also resides. More than 1.500 people have received the ropes workshops, including students, educational and administrative personnel of this house of studies, as well as students of other institutions and companies.
The Center of Excellence is an educative project directed to the UFM students and other people to contribute to their integral education, developing team work abilities and leadership.
