Raise your management IQ: March 29
Featured Events | Mar 27, 2012 | Nicole Gesualdo
How skilled do you think you’d be at managing a culturally diverse workforce?
In today’s business world, if you want to rise to the top echelons, your answer had better be “very skilled.” And you’re going to need to be able to prove it.
To this end, we will be offering all Gabelli students some valuable management training to include on your résumé and discuss in interviews. On March 29, a national-level recruiting director from Ernst & Young will offer concrete, usable training on inclusive leadership.
Here are the details:
Date: Thursday, March 29, 2012
Time: 4:45 to 6:00 p.m. (a separate session for freshmen will take place at 1 p.m.)
Location: Keating 1st
Register: Log in using the red button at right and look for this under “Events”
Who is invited: All sophomores, juniors and seniors anticipating holding a management role one day
Here is a look at what will be covered:
- “The business case for inclusive leadership” — What does the environment out there look like that makes this so important?
- “How to develop a global mindset” — Concrete things you can do to cultivate the kind of outlook that today’s major corporations want in their leaders
- Question and answer session
We hope Gabelli students will take the time to attend this presentation especially because it promotes the kind of inclusive and culturally sensitive thinking that runs directly counter to the negative incidents that took place on campus this winter. A strong showing by Gabelli students on March 29 will demonstrate to the outside world that cultural understanding — and not recent events — is what Fordham and its future business leaders should be known for.
