Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Our spring semester is off to a smooth start—though Mother Nature provided a hiccup with a snowstorm at the beginning of this month. We have learned a lot over the past 11 months about adapting to the times, and we continue to build on and benefit from that knowledge.

Best wishes,
Rajib Sanyal, PhD
IMPACT—Initiative Yields Big Effect

The partnership between the Willumstad School and the International Business School at the Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Sciences in Germany paired eight lecturers and 127 students of four course pairs (business communications, human resource management, business ethics and entrepreneurship) in New York and Cologne, Germany. They worked in 32 cross-country student groups—a superb international education success! Watch a video showing the students' take on the business ethics class.
INNOVATION—Global Education Adapts

For the third year running, our novel New York City-based undergraduate international business course over the winter Intersession enabled students to learn about business and culture in China, leveraging the unique offerings of this metropolis. Delivered virtually, this edition let students immerse in activities such as tai chi lessons, a tea ceremony and a visit to the United Nations. A team of graduate students from China served as “cultural liaisons,” providing a valuable context to student learning.

ENGAGEMENT—Forging an Alliance With SUNY Farmingdale

Adelphi’s partnership with Farmingdale State College—a member of the State University of New York (SUNY) system—to enable the latter’s undergraduates to enter select graduate programs here is now in effect. Adelphi’s STEM-designated Master of Science in Business Analytics program will admit graduates from Farmingdale State College who meet certain qualifications. The agreement also benefits Farmingdale State College students entering the human resource management (HRM) track in the graduate degree in psychology program. The HRM track is offered through the Willumstad School.
