Rod Dreher used to work for the New York Times and he is now a journalist with the magazine The American Conservative.

Born into a Methodist family in 1967, he converted to Catholicism in 1993 then became orthodox in 2006.

His invitation to rediscover traditional Aristotelian moral philosophy resounds powerfully across the Atlantic.

Meet our Advisory Board members

Meet our Advisory Board members

Schiller Paris’s programs of study are the result of decades of experience in the fields of international relations and international business. Our curricula, common at all campuses of Schiller International University, bear the mark of the faculty’s dedication to excellence. A key part of our maintaining high standards is the input of the Paris campus’s Advisory Board who mobilize their expertise and experience to provide us useful advice and counsel. In addition to faculty members who lead our respective degree programs, the Advisory Board is made up of three external members: Mr. Amadou DialloCEO of Saloodo! and CEO of DHL Global Forwarding MEA, and alumnus of Schiller Paris (BBA, MBA ’88); Ms. Shevanne Helmer, founding CEO of Helmer, Ltd (London) and alumna of Schiller Paris (MA IRD ’06); His Excellency, Mr. Dritan TolaAmbassador of Albania in France and Monaco, as well as Representative of the President of Albania to the Organisation international de la Francophonie.

Mr. Diallo’s position at the helm of a multinational and the key businesses of DHL allows him to provide our business and diplomacy students special insights into the workings of the global economy and careers. As an entrepreneur with a line of luxury bags that have conquered the fashion world, Ms.Helmer brings insights of great value to business and international relations students alike. Both of them being alumni of Schiller Paris, they provide a special perspective on careers for our students.  With his wide-ranging experience as a diplomat and with the Francophonie, Ambassador Tola contributes his know-how and insights for the benefit of our international relations and diplomacy programs.

oecd forum 2017

Schiller Paris at the OECD Forum 2017

One of the many advantages Paris offers to international business and international relations students is its proximity to headquarters of numerous international organizations based in the city. We at SIU Paris are well aware of the educational asset this represents and that is why most of our classes schedule ‘field trip’ visits to one of these institutions in the course of the term.

Following attendance by undergraduate international relations students at UNESCO‘s “JOURNALISM UNDER FIRE” conference in March and the dinner/conference at the French Senate with the Research and Communication Institute on Europe in April, a cohort of business students led by Professor Brigitte Beauzamy took part to the OECD Forum 2017 last week. Here’s a summary of the event.

Our Organizational Behavior class had the opportunity to attend the OECD Forum 2017 (official page) on June 7th where we were met with global leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators from around the world. The central themes of the forum were based around the necessary policies and initiatives that must be used in order to bridge divides, how globalization has impacted societies, and technological developments. Each topic provided essential insight to further our education and understanding of the business environment. However, there were three discussions that stood out the most: “Talk Together: Ageing Readiness & Competitiveness,” “Inclusive Entrepreneurship,” and “Inequality, Digitalization & Competition.” Continue reading “Schiller Paris at the OECD Forum 2017”
