Current Learning Opportunities for Students
Managing a Multi-Generational Workforce
The five generations that are in the workforce today provides organizations with an opportunity to leverage a myriad of strengths that each generation brings to the table. It’s important in the multi-generational workforce that leaders understand how to best lead each generation and for employees to understand how to be collaborative and how to work successfully in a team environment. Organizations must also have a good understanding of how to best serve their customers which is also most likely made up of multiple generations. Although the multi-generational workplace may take a little more time and effort to understand and leverage, it can provide organizations with a competitive business advantage.
Lecture Series Webcasts
36 individual Webcasts. The Center for Asian Business in the College of Business Administration at Loyola Marymount University has received a major grant over a three year period from the International Communications Foundation in Seoul, Korea, to provide a lecture series and entertainment media screenings for the LMU community—students, faculty, staff and neighbors. The International Communication Foundation was founded in 1982 by Young Bin Min, chairman of YBM/Si-sa, a Seoul-based corporation. The foundation's mission is to increase awareness and promote the status of Korean culture worldwide.
The purpose for the series of monthly events is to provide opportunities for LMU students to gain a deeper understanding of East Asian countries in context, and eventually to be better equipped to work in this competitive global marketplace after they enter the workforce. America is no longer the sole superpower in today’s global society. Unfortunately, however, foreigners know more about us than we do about them. As LMU is a major university located on the Pacific Rim in one of the world’s most culturally diverse cities, and located in the world capital of the entertainment media, the Center for Asian Business seeks to help the LMU community fill the gap. We are deeply grateful that the ICF grant will allow us to provide these special events.
