HAPPY NEW YEAR! 
Our club responded to the rallying cry:  IMUA!

1 Feb 2023 Zoom Meeting

We are delighted and honored to have fellow Rotarian from Rotary Club Gelsenkirchen-Schloss Horst (http://gelsenkirchen-schloss-horst.rotary.de) in Germany, Professor Dr, Alexander Zureck as our speaker at our zoom meeting this coming Wednesday, February 1 at noon. Dr. Zureck  grew up in Gelsenkirchen where his family are still living. He works in Düsseldorf. This region of Germany is known as its economic heart with the headquarters of Thyssen Krupp (elevators) or Aldi (mostly known as Trader Joe’s in the US)....who knew that??  

Dr. Zureck's business focus is on education, finance, digitization, and real estate. 

Dr. Zureck was in Hawaii to present the insights of a study at #IICEHawaii organized by The International Academic Forum (IAFOR).

The study found that women and immigrants were at a disadvantage due to their lack of financial literacy. The study aims to support those involved in finance (business people, etc.) to better understand the needs of  students attending FOM Hochschule für Oekonomie & Management (University of Applied Sciences for Economics and Management). The majority of students at FOM are working professionals. The range of courses offered centers on business, business administration, economic psychology and engineering. The FOM, founded in 1993, has close relationships with many major German companies.

This study was part of the PhD project of Thomas Hammer, MBA that Mr. Hammer was doing under Dr. Zureck's supervision.
