Thanks to Father McShane, Gabelli School students are invited to apply for a seminar given by alumnus Bob O’Connell (FCRH ’65), the former CEO of both MassMutual and AIG.

This executive-in-residence event is open to an extremely limited number of students because Mr. O’Connell wants to give as much individual attention as possible to each person — including one-on-one meetings. Students must apply via the form linked below; the Gabelli Personal and Professional Development Center staff will select and notify participants.

Date: Thursday, October 25, 2012
Time: 1:00 p.m. (roundtable discussion); 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (individual meetings)
Location: Keating Hall, room TBD
Apply: Click here to submit your application no later than 5 p.m. this Friday, October 12.

Mr. O’Connell is the former president, CEO and chairman of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance. He began his career as an assistant professor of economic history at Fairfield University in 1968-1970, after completing a master of arts degree in European economics at the University of Pennsylvania. He moved into the insurance business when he joined the New York Insurance Co. in 1970. He was vice president of that company from 1983 to 1986 and senior vice president from 1986 to 1989. From 1989 to 1991, Mr. O’Connell served as senior vice president of the group management division at American International Group (AIG). He later was CEO of AIG Life Insurance Cos. and served on the board of AIG Life.

Please remember that applications are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 12. If you have any questions about this seminar, please contact Heather Krasna, director of personal and professional development, at hkrasna@fordham.edu or 718.817.2304.
