Fellows Visit Questrom MBA Leadership Seminar
On Monday, April 2nd, the Fellows attended Professor Michele Jurgen’s Questrom MBA Leadership
Seminar, where they acted both as guests and role models of global leaders in the modern age. As a result of the ongoing Global Leadership Symposium, Professor Jurgin invited the Fellows to attend her current MBA class.
Michele Jurgens is a lecturer in the organization behavior department and former assistant dean for non-degree executive education at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. She has more than 20 years of leadership experience in strategy, quality, and general management. She is also an adjunct faculty member at Harvard Extension School where she teaches two graduate courses: “managing yourself and others” and “ethics, economics, and organizations”.
Led by Professor Jack McCarthy, the session on April 2nd started with an introduction on global
leadership. The Fellows then had the opportunity to speak in small groups with the MBA students about their personal career tracks and professional experiences as global leaders. The event was mutually beneficial for Fellows and students, allowing them to engage in important cross-cultural dialog about leadership
The event also allowed the Fellows to reflect on their own leadership development. These types of interactions are always a highlight for our Fellows as it allows for the oppourtunity to collaborate with students in a professional manner.
