This morning, we kick started day one of Foundation Week. We have had a busy morning welcoming our newly arrived MBA students to Smurfit Business School, that is the Full-Time MBA Class of 2016 and the Executive MBA Class of 2017. It has been a great morning meeting everybody, welcoming our international students to Dublin, and getting to know one another.
Foundation Week is a week-long orientation session which takes place prior to the academic course. It is designed to assist our MBA students as they return to formal study. Subjects covered include: Communication Skills, Report Writing, Team Building, Leadership Skills, Introduction to Personal Awareness & Personality Type, Multicultural Learning Environment, Networking Sessions, Case Study Analysis, Library & IT Skills and Productivity Management, amongst others.
I would like to wish all of our newly arrived MBA students the very best over the course of their time with us here at Smurfit, the exciting journey starts here.
