Professors from Barry University’s Andreas School of Business are playing host to nine international students from the Georg Simon Ohm Management Institute in Germany, for a Master of Business Administration (MBA) seminar this week.
Throughout the week, the students of Indian, Chinese and German descent, along with their professor and academic director, Dr. Werner Fees, will sit in on lectures by Barry business professors and visit businesses in South Florida.
Dr. Stephen Morrell, an economics and finance professor at Barry, will accompany Dr. Fees and his nine MBA international students on a tour of City Furniture’s corporate headquarters and showroom in Tamarac, Fla. They will speak with Mike Lennon, Executive Vice President, about business, leadership and economics this Friday, Feb. 27 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Because last year proved to be tumultuous for businesses, governments and economies around the globe, Barry professors will also be conducting a series lectures for the fifth annual program entitled “After the Crash: The Vital Role of Ethical Business Leadership in Restoring Global Growth.”
The Honorable Klaus H. D. Ranner, Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany to Florida, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands, graciously kicked off the week’s events at Barry on Monday, wishing the students and professors a successful stay.
“The partnership of both institutions is vital for students,” said Consul General Ranner. “The world of business is indeed global, they must experience the cultural differences of where they are going to work tomorrow.”
