Gabelli Faculty Return To School With New Consortium Knowledge

Fordham Gabelli Faculty

At the Fordham University Gabelli School of Business in New York City, the professors never stop learning. When summer rolls around, instead of taking a break, some go on to further their education—bringing it back to their students come fall.

Three Gabelli professors attended the Aspen Undergraduate Business Education Consortium at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley. Business school professors Miguel Alzola, Julita Haber, and Kelly Ulto went to the two-day consortium to learn how to integrate business and the liberal arts. Faculty from about 40 other colleges and universities joined the event.

The consortium sought to show how business education can help students “make sense of the world and their place in it while preparing them to engage responsibly with the life of their times,” according to a press release.

Guest speakers included Harvard Professor Mihir Desai and Haas School Dean Richard Lyons. Lyons spoke about the role of educators for future generations. Vice President of Apple Joel Podolny presented at the consortium too. He explained how a company “can stay true to its vision,” per the press release.

The three faculty members plan to bring this knowledge back to their students this coming school year. Gabelli MBA candidates and undergraduate students alike will learn the value of mixing business with the liberal arts.
