Getting their Tech on

As an integral part of the CEMS Club Rotterdam semester plan, the Dublin Tech Tour, typically organized in the fall semester, has developed into an extremely popular event among all RSM CEMS students. The Dublin Tech Tour is a two-day journey among some of the best tech companies in the area known as the “Silicon Docks”. Organized autonomously by the corporate committee, the tour in the Irish capital is available to all students with an interest in a career in the tech industry. As it is not part of any official course, the tour boasts many benefits for CEMS students taking part in it, i.e. autonomy in the company selection and workshop-type according to general interests.

We spoke with CEMS students Francesca Barberio and Margarita Ereiliadou to learn more.

Generation next: What will be expected of leaders in a globally interconnected world?

The next generation of leaders has an overwhelming number of options to choose from in the global business world. The CEMS students I teach – many of whom will become future international leaders – sometimes ask my advice on how to best navigate so many opportunities. My response to them is that they are lucky to have so many options, and they no longer have to think in a linear way. To help them focus, however, I encourage them to think clearly about their values and life purpose. So which areas will this next generation of leaders need to focus on in a globally interconnected world?
