Building a successful Jesuit network under the umbrella IAJU
Building Jesuit Networks - Ideas on success factors for Jesuit Networking
“We have to be very clear: what is the added value you are bringing into the table of the jesuit mission? are you bringing learning capabilities and adaptation to our mission , impact or scale.., explorability and innovation..., to which objectives of the higher education secretary are you contributing? to what extent you work ? If you are clear with these questions, I think you are in a proper way to succeed.”

How to operate fruitful synergy between IAJU and IAJES?
“When I was told that you wanted to form an association and that it would be difficult and so on and so forth..! No, it's going to be easy because engineers are very collaborative by nature; they understand everything has to fit together and work together or nothing happens.”
- “Engineering, Business and Education are the 3 most valued schools in those parts of the world where they don't have jesuit schools. One of the hopes is that your network will help us with starting schools in places they want them.”
