NUI Galway Executive MBA students recently took part in a week-long Global Gateway Programme at the world renowned Fordham University in New York City as part of their international study experience.

During the week, the MBA students were exposed to world-leading academics at Fordham University where they attended seminars, workshops and lectures on a broad range of topics including global finance, leadership, change management, and participated in a teamwork through Jazz seminar hosted by musicians in the famous Jazz at the Lincoln Centre.  The MBA class also visited Tiffany & Co. where they learned from the Vice-President of Finance about leading one of the most recognised global luxury brands.  Other key speakers included Prof John Tognino, former Managing Director of Merrill Lynch and Prof Bill Catucci, former CEO AT&T Canada. 

One of the highlights of the NUI Galway MBA international study visit to NYC was an interactive roundtable panel discussion organised and sponsored by the Galway University Foundation entitled “International Career Reflections: Looking Back, Looking Forward” held at the private NY Athletic Club on Central Park South. This year’s international study programme also included a breakfast event at the Irish Consulate in Ireland House on Park Avenue where the NUI Galway MBA group was hosted by the Deputy Counsel General.

Speaking about the international study visit programme, Dr Alma McCarthy, NUI Galway Executive MBA Director said: 

“We established the international programme on the NUI Galway MBA in 2011 and, since then, it is considered by students to be one of the most distinctive and greatest learning experiences on the MBA.  We are very pleased to be able to draw on the excellent network Galway University Foundation has built in NYC and to continue our partnership with Fordham University”.
