Southeast Asian Nations to Gather at NYU Stern for Leadership Program

Southeast Asian Nations to Gather at NYU Stern for Leadership Program

New York University’s Stern School of Business will be hosting executives from the ASEAN region next year in April.

The executives will be arriving from regional management consulting firm SRW&Co. for their ASEAN Global Leadership Program (AGLP) from April 16 to 20, 2018, according to a press release. It takes its program to different leading business universities every year. Some have been in China, U.S., and in the U.K. This year, it’ll be coming to New York City for the first time.

“New York City is an epicenter of global business and a thriving hub of innovation that companies from multinationals to technology firms to startups call home,” NYU Stern Dean Peter Henry said in the press release. “Given our proximity, our faculty are in constant conversation with the business community and will bring the latest insights around global business leadership and innovation to this year’s course for AGLP participants.”

The AGLP is going to center four themes: globalization, innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership. Organizations in the corporate or public sector have something to learn from the program—even if they aren’t conducting business in the ASEAN region, which includes Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. These themes are valuable across industries and throughout the world.

Why not host the AGLP at NYU Stern? The business school is the perfect place for the global program as it prioritizes a global approach to education, says Eitan Zemel, Vice Dean of Global and Executive Education, in the press release.

“We are honored to work with SRW&Co. and to welcome AGLP participants to our campus, where they will have access to some of our most celebrated faculty and participate in stimulating conversation on key topics for both the ASEAN region and the global economy,” Zemel would go on to say.

Cass EMBA Students Take On Business Challenges in Vietnam

Over 50 Cass Executive MBA students flew out to Vietnam in early September for their International Consultancy Week, during which students apply skills they’ve learned throughout the course to unfamiliar international business environments.

Students spent a week in Hanoi, where they worked together to create improvement recommendations for 11 host Vietnamese companies. These included one of the biggest carton manufacturing companies in North Vietnam, a major wholesaler of agricultural products and food to schools, hospitals and supermarkets, and the country’s premiere luxury fashion retailer.

One project group was challenged with designing training programmes to differentiate products and services for one of Vietnam’s largest bank securities firms, while another helped establish a payroll infrastructure and staff management tools in a not-for-profit social enterprise that teaches employment skills to disadvantaged teenagers.
