GBA Global Manager Conference Kicks off in India

Fordham’s Graduate School of Business Administration (GBA) kicks off the first of a two-part conference, “The Future Global Manager” on Saturday, Feb. 25 in Bhubaneswar, India.

The day-long conference, which will continue in New York City on May 16, is hosted by the GBA and the Three Continent Masters of Global Management (3CMGM) program. GBA Dean David Gautschi, Ph.D., and Sertan Kabadayi, Ph.D., associate professor of marketing, will attend.

The 12-month long 3CMGM program partners Fordham with the Antwerp Management School in Belgium and the Xavier Institute of Management in Bhubaneswar, and is designed to prepare high-potential recent university graduates for successful professional careers through a unique global immersion in management education.

Students live and study in U.S., Europe, and India and gain an in-depth exposure to the diverse economies and cultures there. The goal is to come away with a truly global perspective on business, a sense of the social value of business development in the global economy and increased personal development and self-awareness.
