15 July 2013


A meeting of Postgraduate Business school students and Oxford Brookes alumni took place this month in Boston, USA. Students of the school and graduates of Brookes residing in the local area were invited to spend the evening with Susie Kitchens the British Consul General, in her official residence.

The reception took place along with a calendar of events designed for students on a study tour led by Dr Gabor Lukacs, the Program lead for MSc programs at Brookes. Students took time to explore Boston as a great city of American culture and meet with leaders of global firms including: The Federal Reserve Bank, State Street, Bose, Microsoft, Covidien, New England Patriots, and iRobot.

The tour gave these students a unique opportunity to spend seven days immersing themselves in a different culture, networking with influential business men and women and alumni of Brookes, as well as learning how different global firms operate. A brilliant time was had by all.
