I got to experience this when we were doing the Benihana case. The professor asked us to visit the restaurant to get a first hand experience so that we could enjoy a lively discussion throughout the week. As we have no doubt made clear, our class is located all over the globe. So, when the instruction goes out from the Professor, each of us is going to try and hunt down the nearest Benihana to give it a glimpse. For me, it literally meant just a glimpse as I'd get little to eat in a Japaneses restaurant being a veggie who neither ate meat nor seafood.

The discussion was lively indeed and although I agree with the professor that it would have been splendid to sit in a Benihana together discussing operations, we would have missed a Global perspective. Instead of discussing operations at 1 Benihana, we now got a chance to discuss the Operations variability or Consistency across several WW Benihanas. Isn't that what the Global MBA experience is all about?
