Fall Convocation 2016

Posted on September 21st, 2016

convocation 2016Students at SIU Paris will be participating in Fall Convocation 2016 Friday, September 30th at the American Cathedral in Paris. This is the occasion to mark the beginning of the Fall 2016 Term, and guest speakers will include Javed Hamid, Member of the Board of Trustees of Schiller International University and former Director of the East Asia and Pacific Region branch of the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation (IFC).

Mr. Javed Hamid has been involved in some of the most important investment strategies in that institution’s history:  furthering China’s transition to a market economy, leading the financial structuring strategy in the wake of the 1997 Asian financial crisis, opening up the IFC’s first Asian offices, and spearheading the IFC’s first-ever investments in education, to name but a few key moments.
