In Brief

IBM to train employees on Web

Communications giant IBM announced this week that it has developed a new Web-based course with Concordia's International Aviation Master's of Business Administration (IAMBA) program.

The course, consisting of six modules on the fundamentals of airline management, will be offered to IBM's travel and transportation employees this fall.

This collaboration complements others between IBM and the IAMBA unit, including the Global Aviation MBA, being created to deliver distance education, and a laboratory that simulates the processes airlines use to manage passenger flow.

Glengarry Glen Ross at Reggie's

David Mamet's Pulitzer-winning drama about a real estate office you wouldn't want to work in will be staged in Reggie's Bar, on the second floor of the Henry F. Hall Building, on April 24 at 11 p.m. and April 25, 26 and 27 at 8 p.m.

First-time director Emma Tibaldo leads a cast of students in this modern classic, celebrated when it appeared in 1984 for its tough, realistic dialogue.

¡Hola! MuchMusic

An Argentine film crew from the Latin American version of MuchMusic toured both campuses on April 1 to make a series of short videos on universities. Concordia is the only institution they visited in Montreal.

MuchMusic Argentina was a sponsor of EduCanada, an education fair organized by the Canadian Education Centre in Buenos Aires last fall. They made their connection with Concordia through the Canadian Education Centre and Richard Diubaldo, Director of Continuing Education, who gave an interview to La Nacion, Buenos Aires' national newspaper, when he was there on a recruiting mission.

The videos, which include footage from universities in Vancouver and Toronto as well as Concordia, will be shown several times a day for four months throughout Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. MuchMusic Argentina is the most-watched cable music station in the country, with 3.3 million subscribers and a target audience of 13- to 25-year-olds.

The crew filmed a class in progress at Loyola Campus, including the residence, Continuing Education's facilities in the Faubourg Tower, the inside of the library complex, and the ever-busy
corner of Mackay St. and de Maisonneuve Blvd.
