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!

“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.
