Open campus lunch

My old high school was one of the only ones in the area that had an ‘open campus lunch’. Our high school used to be crowded, with around 3,000 kids. Our school wasn’t built for even two-thirds of that, so there was no chance of accommodating that many students at lunch time. As such, there was no choice but to have an ‘open campus’ at lunch.

An open campus allows kids to leave the school during lunch, just so long as they’re back in time for class afterwards. You could go anywhere: out to fast food, back home briefly, walk to a local store, wherever.

After arriving at high school from middle school, the thought of an open campus lunch was probably the coolest thing I had ever thought of. I remember my first lunch at high school, I walked to a local market and bought some food. I felt so grown-up.

With an open campus lunch, the big thing was always having your license and a car, even more so than normal. Once you had both, you had the freedom to go wherever you wanted during lunch. Of course, once everyone else fond out, they would pounce on you like wolves to try to be taken out to lunch. Continue reading

Internship in Advertising

All through summer I had the pleasure of an Advertising and Brand Management Internship for New York City based U.S. Consumer Advertising. I functioned directly under two advertising executives, concentrating on brand advertising and marketing and media strategies. I immediately received several responsibilities, such as supporting the company management and optimization of media deals, recommendation of media proportion and looking into up and coming media.

My recommendations to anybody who is looking for an advertising internship is to stay as flexible as possible. Make sure to get as many distinctive skills as you can through your learning process and don’t be afraid to apply them. Internships at leading advertising agencies are hard to get and the level of competition is solid, but it was absolutely worth the battle.

Being an intern, you have the exceptional possibility to observe and experience the various aspects of the business. Of course, interns may perhaps need to take coffee runs, but they also have the opportunity to experience a video shoot or do paperwork throughout a strategy session. From time to time, interns even need to entertain clients or show up at industry networking activities. Continue reading

They may even get in touch with investors and be introduced to new options and fascinating opportunities.

I recently visited my friend who is a successful entrepreneur, running for 12 years now the gaskets producing company, Gelria.  He says that this kind of events are very important for the next generation, young people who will take over the family business. It’s planned that his son will be leading Gelria in 5 years so for now he visits this kind of fairs, study  entrepreneurship and yes, work in the company, and not as a leader but simple on the production. Peter says that if his son wants to sell gaskets, he needs to know how are they produced.

Countless completely new start-ups are established through bootcamps, for example Start-up Weekend, and contests like Start-up Open. Many universities set up and improve relationships that enable them to commercialize groundwork from their labs. Scientists, researchers and policymakers participate in dialogues all over the world to evaluate the underlying procedures required to stimulate entrepreneurial expansion.

The Largest Donation

In September 2010 Fordham University received the largest donation in the school’s history. Mario Gabelli (class of 1965) in a very generous way provided this donation, and in appreciation, Fordham University’s College of Business Administration was renamed the Gabelli School of Business.

Mario Gabelli was born in The Bronx as the son of Italian immigrants. He first went to Fordham Preparatory School, and he was reported saying that, when he was young, he read market reports just for fun and Marion purchased his first stock at the age of only 13 years old.

Marion Gabelli received a scholarship and graduated “Summa Cum Laude” from Fordham University, and he later in his academic education received his MBA (Master of Business Administration) degree from Columbia Business School. Mario Joseph Gabelli was born June 19, 1942. He is an American stock investor, investments adviser, and financial analytic expert.

Mario Gabelli visits Fordham University regularly, and on those occasions he frequently speaks to students so they can learn from Mr. Gabelli’s personal experiences.
