The István Széchenyi Institute is delighted to sponsor the International Business Society’s first international business mission. A delegation will represent Quinnipiac University at the ASECU Youth Conference (Association of Economic Universities of South and Eastern Europe and the Black Sea Region), from July 15-20th, in Kotor, Montenegro.
Throughout the years the International Business Society has been looking for ways to help its members extend their global opportunities, experiences and cultural diversity awareness. With a totally new e-board that focuses on providing more international and multidisciplinary academic and professional experiences to its members, the student organization has believes that such achievements will only be a result of hard-work added to excellent partnerships.
Italo Alves’15, Alyssa Thomas’13 and Michael Graziano’16, Presidents and Vice-President of External Affairs, respectively, were selected to go to the 3rd ASECU Youth Conference, which focuses on “Knowledge Economy- Impact on Sustainable Development of the Countries from East and South East Europe”. The conference will cover a range of topics such as economic growth, human capital, digital economy, research and development, intellectual property, financial market innovations, and global marketing challenges.
“For the International Business Society, this presents a unique opportunity on multiple fronts. First off, it exposes our members to different perspectives on the very business practices we study every day. Secondly, it is an opportunity to learn from scholars and students alike. … It aids to our development not only as business professionals, but more specifically as international business professionals,” highlights Alyssa Thomas, current President of the club.
“This is just the perfect opportunity for us to establish even more partnerships with student clubs in Europe and narrow down the distance between academics and professionalism in international business. Hopefully, the results of this representation will be enormous to our club, and we will be able to attend even more conferences like this in the future,” says Italo Alves, Co-President of the IB Society.
“This conference will not only encourage us to focus on the economic concerns of the world, but give these three students enough information, knowledge, and confidence to bring everything learned back to our home at Quinnipiac University, which is our ultimate goal through this trip,” affirms Michael Graziano, VP of External Affairs.
The IB Society thanks Quinnipiac University and all its supporters for making this student dream a reality!
