The Chandaria School of Business Executive on Thursday, February 1 held a meeting with Dr. Siri Terjesen, who is Dean’s Research Fellow in Entrepreneurship at American University’s Kogod School of Business and Director of the American University’s Center for Innovation. The meeting discussed faculty and student exchanges, accreditation processes, and linkages to other universities, all of which are expected to be included in a forthcoming agreement between the two schools.
One of the immediate proposed benefits of such an agreement would the realization of a new Global Study Tour destination for the current cohort of MBA (Global Business Management) students, to the U.S. capital of Washington D.C. where the American University’s campus is located. The Tour is held every summer semester.
Other senior Chandaria School of Business officials who attended the meeting included Prof. Peter Lewa (Dean), Dr. Teresia Linge (Associate Dean), Dr. Francis Gatumo (Program Director - Finance & Accounting Programs), Dr. Kefah Njenga (Assistant Professor of Organizational Development), Mr. Patrick Mulindi (Program Director - Tourism Management, Hotel & Restaurant Management Programs), Prof. Kang’ethe Iraki (Professor of French) and Ms. Kellen Njagi (International Students Officer).
