Weatherhead is excited to offer to all students and alumni a chance to travel with the school this summer on our third International Institute of 2007:

Belfast and Dublin, Ireland
June 8 to June 17

Over the course of nine days, Weatherhead students, faculty -- and now alumni -- will explore Ireland's booming economy, known as the "Celtic Tiger." When you are not visiting firsthand the companies fueling Ireland's economy, you will be exploring, experiencing, and enjoying the country's natural beauty and rich culture (e.g., Dublin Castle, Trinity College, Guinness).

Alumni (and spouses) are invited to attend the Institute along with current M.B.A. students. Alumni have the option to register for the MGMT-460 class through Weatherhead’s 50% MBA+ program, but doing so is not required to join the Institute. Costs, which include all flight, in-country transportation, hotel, and several meal expenses, are estimated to be $3,000 per person.

Professor Myron Roomkin, who has developed or lead over 75 similar international trips during his time at the Kellogg School of Management and elsewhere, will lead our Ireland Institute. "This Institute is a great opportunity for all Weatherhead students, past and present, to examine the rapid economic and social transformation of Ireland," Professor Roomkin shared. "I am excited to serve as the Institute's faculty advisor and to make this an outstanding educational experience. Please join me and your fellow students in this exciting, and fun opportunity."
