4TH OF JULY ALUMNI NETWORKING DRINK
Thursday, July 4, 2019 at 6:30 pm

The 4th of July is one of the best-loved traditional celebration days in the U.S. where people gather together with friends, family and neighbors to celebrate American Independence Day—a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.

It’s a day when Americans love to let their hair down, relax and have some fun.

This year, the Jack Welch College of Business and the SHU Luxembourg Alumni Association bring together our fellow American university alumni associations, the Cornell Club of Luxembourg, the Harvard Club of Luxembourg and the Thunderbird Graduate School for International Management Luxembourg Alumni Chapter, to proudly celebrate the 4th of July at the world’s first Conversion Hub! Foundry is a totally unique environment, community and working space in the heart of Luxembourg City. We could not wish for a more appropriate venue to connect the American university community!

The #4thofSHUly celebrations come at the perfect time for JWCOB students!

As the 2018-2019 Academic Year draws to an end, the SHU Luxembourg Alumni Association hope to congratulate all the hard work, dedication and achievements of our students and alumni, by kicking off your summer with the 4th of July Alumni Networking Drink (End of the 2018-2019 Academic Year Party!)

“SHU helped me adapt to my career transition”, Natalie Retter

At SHU, we believe that it is never too late to change your career. If you have the will and passion, you can cross even the most difficult hurdles to achieve your goal.

Natalie Retter (MBA with internship, ‘15) is one of SHU’s best ambassadors to prove it. Retter moved to Luxembourg from Ethiopia and changed her career path from working in an NGO to now, in a tax advisory firm.

A challenging transition, which was made easier with the proper guidance from SHU, Natalie shares she is now happy with the career path she has chosen for herself.

From Professional to Student-Intern and Back Again!

Full Circle: How One Student’s Journey to Luxembourg for Love, Brought Him to SHU

Edward Henry took a leap of faith when he moved to Luxembourg for his [now] fiancée in 2014—leaving behind his well-established career in the U.S.A.—to start fresh in the European Capital of Luxembourg.

Starting from scratch in a multilingual and multicultural country like Luxembourg is not a cakewalk.

Edward’s only hope for making a professional transition, he says, was to go back to being a student and pursue an MBA at the Sacred Heart University Jack Welch College of Business in Luxembourg. The MBA with internship program at SHU Lux was the perfect fit. Known for being an ‘opportunity provider’ for its students, SHU opened its doors to Edward, and brought to light his opportunities in the Luxembourg job market.

And the rest is history…

After graduating in 2015, Edward Henry, MBA, is now an Internal Auditor at Grohe Group.

SHU caught up with Edward for an exclusive interview about his unique journey to Luxembourg:

How did you first hear about the MBA with internship program in SHU?
How did you find life as a student in Luxembourg?
What was your journey like, from being a student/intern to a full-time employee?
Any changes in your personal/professional life while you were pursuing the MBA?
How did the MBA help to build your career in Luxembourg?

Here’s what Edward had to say…
