A group of NUI Galway Executive MBA students took part in a week-long Global Gateway Programme at the world renowned Fordham University in New York City in June 2013.

Students met with experienced academics and attended seminars and lectures from finance, leadership and change to teamwork through Jazz.

One highlight was a Breakfast Panel organised and sponsored by the Galway University Foundation entitled “Reflections on Professional Success”. All of the speakers, many of whom are NUI Galway graduates, have distinguished international careers and shared their experiences in the corporate world together with the challenges encountered in achieving ‘balance’ in their personal and senior executive lives. The Executive MBA students learned the importance of embracing change, on-going learning and development, mentoring and building relationships. The event was hosted at the exclusive New York Athletic Club on Central Park. “The NUI Galway event was extremely beneficial and in a wonderful location which really complemented the programme in Fordham”, said John Evans, Executive MBA 2012-14.
