Learn and apply supply chain strategies to support honey producers in Honduras.
Students are guided by our local economic development professionals and mentors from leading consulting firms to learn about the honey supply chain and make recommendations to our honey-producing cooperatives to generate more income. Students will gain exposure to honey farmers, cooperatives, local buyers, and exporters/importers. Through interviews, industry research, return on investment calculations, and cultural sharing, students make recommendations to the clients to help them decide what investments to make to increase profitability. The curriculum culminates in students helping to post a loan to Kiva.org to grant access to financing any of the recommendations that the clients would like to take.
In addition to our skill-based learning objectives, building cultural competence is integrated into the course to increase the quality of services and improve outcomes with community partners.
