December the Janus-faced month
December is already part of next year. The genuine Janus-faced month isn’t January but the inaccurately monikered “tenth” month of our twelve-month calendar. In other words, December is a forward-looking month, a month turned towards the future. Think of it, by the time December 1st rolls around, one’s sights are already set towards the end of the month with its time of feasts and holidays. The month as a whole can be seen as one long build-up for the main events that take place during the last week of the month.

To understand the world of business we need to have some background on our history and how we arrived to where we are at today. Museums offer a great opportunity for students to discover this, and what better guide than one of our professors.
Considered to rank among the world’s leading museums of its kind, Museo Casa de la Moneda boasts rich and varied collections and spacious exhibition areas, combined with the technical support offered by the staff, to both researchers and educators alike. In a word, it is a unique place to learn about the world of money.
As our students visited the museum, they were taken on a journey through the history of money and diverse production methods from its very origins.
Its rooms feature displays of major collections ranging from numismatics and philately to banknotes and other means of payment, lottery and gaming, and also the machinery and tools used in their manufacture by the employees of the Spanish Royal Mint.
This was a great opportunity for the students to discover the world of Money and how history led us here.
It has already become a beloved Schiller Madrid tradition to host a Parents Night, and 2019 was no different.
We know choosing a university is a defining moment in someone’s life, and the ones that are normally more involved, aside from the student, are his or her parents. They are the unsung heroes, working behind the scenes, checking every single detail of the institution that will prepare their child for their future career. To honor that effort and welcome an opportunity for them to network, we created this parents night where, as an institution, we get to share the latest updates about academics, events, results and the future of SIU.
During the event, parents from all over the world had the opportunity to join and talk to our professors and staff, getting to know the ones that are shaping the future of this generation. This was also a great opportunity to talk about the students academic development and their future career outside of the walls of our university.
We hope everyone enjoyed this gathering, as well as reassured their trust in our institution, to continue to develop the international leaders of tomorrow.
November is the month of memory. Beginning in the wake of All Soul’s Day when families remember the dearly departed, by month’s end Americans will have made the traditional gesture of giving thanks to those, both past and present, worthy of memory. Near the middle of the month lies Remembrance Day, or as the French directly call it, “l’onze novembre”. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the peace treaty, but who could doubt by now that a century is not nearly enough to process all that took place between 1914 and 1918? Thus the need we have of memory for the further the events fade into the past, the more we are left to wonder what it is we are trying to recollect in the first place.
