Institute for Global Enterprise Programs

Two major speakers are scheduled for November by the Institute for Global Enterprise at the University of Evansville. First up is Thomas Friedman, columnist for The New York Times and author of several books, including The World is Flat and Hot, Flat, and Crowded. He will speak at a noon luncheon 6 November in the Conrad Hotel in downtown Indianapolis and also give a free 7 p.m. lecture that evening in the Centre Auditorium in Evansville.

Dr. Christy Djockoua Manyaka Toko will speak on "International Education and the Bridging of Cultures: The Cameroon Experience" at 7 p.m. 16 November in room 170, Schroeder Family School of Business Administration, University of Evansville, 1800 Lincoln Avenue, Evansville. Her presentation, which is free and open to the public, is the keynote address for International Education Week, which is sponsored in part by a grant from the Office of Diversity Initiatives.

Also, Robert Clark, dean of UE’s Schroeder Family School of Business Administration and director of the Institute, will discuss its programs with Indianapolis’s Rotary Club next Tuesday (29 September). UE president, Stephen Jennings, also will attend the meeting at noon in the Scottish Rite Cathedral in Indianapolis.

The Institute for Global Enterprise in Indiana is in its sixth year of activity. As an extension of the Schroeder Family School of Business Administration at UE, its strategic focus is the global marketplace with the objective of enhancing the international business knowledge and skills for UE students and faculty, and increasing global competitiveness for Tri-State businesses.
