I received an invitation to attend a leadership class in FEU. I was prepared to go to Morayta, but pleasantly realized that it was going to be held in the new FEU building in Makati, where the old Zuellig building was. Looking for parking space took time, as there was really nothing available. Going around the school, I learned that they offer MBA courses, culinary arts, and legal management.
The class I attended was organized by John Clements, part of their Executive MBA program that they have in partnership with FEU. The speaker was Dr. Steven DeKrey from HKUST, who gave us a day long seminar on Leadership Priorities in Asia. There was a lively discussion as most of the participants were seasoned executives as well as professors in the MBA faculty. I had a great time listening to the insights shared by my classmates.
The FEU school in Makati is the latest academic institution to add a Makati presence. Offhand I can think of Mapua along Buendia, Lyceum somewhere in Salcedo, of course Dela Salle and Ateneo have always been there, CEU I think also has a presence. This makes sense as it makes them closer to the corporate world, making their students and faculty more or less attuned to the industry
