In addition, he stated that it is rather difficult to determine which of the two is more important since one compliments the other and one is a pre-requisite for the other for a man with such a noteworthy achievement in his country and abroad. Dr. Holmes concluded that President Elias Foutsis is awarded the Honorary Doctorate in Business Administration and the Honorary Doctorate in Education. Both Doctorate degrees were awarded to President Foutsis by Baroness Morris, Chancellor of the University of Bolton.

 Mr. Steven Hemmings, Senior Facilitator with the European Knowledge Group UK, conducted a two day TangoNet and Cayenne simulation workshop in June 2014 with NYC MBA students.

TangoNet® is an interactive strategic planning and learning simulation game that encourages participants to address the issues and challenges involved in running a complex business from a knowledge perspective.  The students worked in teams and adopted roles of sales/marketing, finance, project planning and HR while competing with each other. The teams focused on developing a business plan, strategic targets and objectives as well as day to day operation issues, hiring the right to order to run a successful business.

Celemi Cayenne™ is a simulation that helps people be better prepared to deal with unexpected events and changing project conditions. While working in teams, the students monitored and managed a project.  The teams were challenged by problems and events in the different project phases and had to decide how to best use limited resources to achieve their objectives.  This simulation encouraged the students to see ‘the big picture’ and understand how to contribute to the project objectives especially related to leadership, teamwork and strategy skills.

Παγκόσμια Ημέρα Περιβάλλοντος

Tue, 06/10/2014 - 14:09

Το NEW YORK COLLEGE στα πλαίσια της παγκόσμιας ημέρας περιβάλλοντος καταβάλλει κάθε προσπάθεια για να ενισχυθεί η περιβαλλοντολογική ευαισθητοποίηση ιδιαίτερα στους νέους. Η εφαρμογή της περιβαλλοντολογικής νομοθεσίας αλλά και η προστασία των δασών, του θαλάσσιου περιβάλλοντος και της βιοποικιλότητας είναι υποχρέωση όλων μας.

Το New York College επισημαίνει ότι η σημερινή παγκόσμια ημέρα περιβάλλοντος δεν είναι ημέρα εορτασμού αλλά ημέρα προβληματισμού και περισυλλογής για την υποβάθμιση του περιβάλλοντος. Το θαλάσσιο περιβάλλον καταστρέφεται, η μη διαχείριση των αστικών αποβλήτων απειλεί τις πόλεις, η εξοικονόμηση ενέργειας και οι ανανεώσιμες πηγές ενέργειας προωθούνται με αργούς ρυθμούς, η υπερθέρμανση του πλανήτη μειώνει την παγκόσμια παραγωγή τροφίμων και στις μεγάλες πόλεις το μολυσμένο ατμοσφαιρικό περιβάλλον απειλεί την ζωή των κατοίκων. Η ποιότητα ζωής συνεχώς υποβαθμίζεται.

Το περιβάλλον είναι το σπίτι όλων μας, ας συνεργαστούμε όλοι για να γίνει καλύτερο.
Σκεφτόμαστε παγκόσμια, δρούμε τοπικά.

We go green, we think globally, we act locally.
