Abstract

Kathy Engle was one of the four executive directors of the LEADER Project (LEADER), an MBA student-run volunteer program associated with the Richard Ivey School of Business at The University of Western Ontario. LEADER''s objective was to contribute to international development by teaching introductory business and decision-making skills for a free-market economy to students in institutions in emerging economies. On 6 March, 2002, Engle had to decide whether to recommend expanding LEADER in May of that year rather than continuing its traditional connections in the former Soviet Union. If so, she would also have to recommend to which country the program should expand, and how it should go about doing so. One of the candidate countries for expansion was Cuba. Engle had accumulated a considerable amount of information about Cuba, but it was both positive and negative.
