                           JULY, 2006 PROGRAM
Inside New York Business, Banking and International Relations is a three-week course, organized
by Universidad Pontificia Comillas, Madrid in cooperation with Fordham University in New
York. It will take place from July 7 until July 28, 2006. The course responds to Comillas
University’s goal to strengthen relations with other universities in the United States and
particularly with Fordham College.
―Inside New York‖ will expose students to life in New York and facilitate a better understanding
of U.S. multiculturalism and the diversity of its people. From a Jesuit’s tradition of openness and
excellence in education, the course will expose participants to the fundamental pillars of U.S.
commerce and banking, its legal and political structures as well as United Nations.
From a business and banking perspective, ―Inside New York‖ will give students a chance to
better understand the functioning of domestic and foreign banks with offices in New York, law
firms, Chambers of Commerce, non-profit organizations, and the Stock Exchange. During the
seminars and conferences, students will participate in discussions and debates dealing with public
opinion on current domestic and international issues. The program will also include a full week of
conferences and seminars at the United Nations headquarters in New York.
Another goal of this program is to allow students to network with people whose careers focus on
international development and public service. To facilitate this, ―Inside New York‖ will organize
a series of encounters between participants and more than twenty professionals who have
volunteered their time to lecture at Fordham University. These professionals are employees of
international organizations, lawyers from different law firms, individuals working in federal
agencies on in private practices, judges, economists and other professionals working for
humanitarian organizations and educational institutions. The scheduled presentations will offer
students with first-hand information on the volunteers’ work experiences, their background and
areas of expertise as well as their insights on topics under discussion.
―Inside New York‖ will also provide students an opportunity to learn more about Fordham
University, New York City’s Jesuit University, its many undergraduate and graduate programs on
its campuses (Manhattan, Bronx, Westchester) as well as local outreach and international
programs in which faculty and students are involved. Most of the program’s participants are
undergraduates in their fourth and fifth years of law school or students working on combined
degrees in law, business administration or economics at Comillas and other universities in Spain.
All students are fluent in English and their age ranges from 20 to 23 years. After their arrival and
an organizational session focusing on the program as a whole and Fordham, the City and its
people, the program will proceed with the following schedule:

8:45 am                 I. VISIT TO UNITED NATIONS

In 1945, representatives of 50 countries met in San Francisco at the United Nations
Conference on International Organization to draw up the United Nations Charter. The
Organization officially came into existence on 24 October 1945, when the Charter had
been ratified by China, France, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, the United States
and a majority of other signatories. United Nations Day is celebrated on 24 October The
Charter is the constituting instrument of the United Nations, setting out the rights and
obligations of Member States, and establishing the Organization's organs and procedures.
The purposes of the United Nations, as set forth in the Charter, are to maintain
international peace and security; to develop friendly relations among nations; to
cooperate in solving international economic, social, cultural and humanitarian problems
and in promoting respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms; and to be a centre
for harmonizing the actions of nations in attaining these ends. The six principal organs of
the United Nations, are the: General Assembly, Security Council, Economic and Social
Council, Trusteeship Council, International Court of Justice and Secretariat. The United
Nations family, however, is much larger, encompassing 15 agencies and several
programs and bodies.

The United Nations family of organizations is made up of the United Nations Secretariat, the
United Nations programs and funds -- such as the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the UN

Development Program (UNDP) -- and the specialized agencies. The programs, funds and
agencies have their own governing bodies and budgets, and set their own standards and
guidelines. Together, they provide technical assistance and other forms of practical help in
virtually all areas of economic and social endeavor.

U.S.A. NYSE is home to some 2,800 companies valued at nearly $15 trillion in global market

NYSE trades, unlike those on some other more "virtual" exchanges (e.g. NASDAQ), always
involve face-to-face communication in a particular physical location. There is one podium/desk
on the trading floor for each of the exchange's stocks. Exchange members interested in buying
and selling a particular stock on behalf of investors gather around the appropriate podium/desk,
where a NYSE employee facilitates the negotiations between buyers and sellers. This buying and
selling creates a good deal of hustle and bustle, which has been captured in several movies,
including Wall Street.

History of Fordham University: Fordham University is an independent university in the Jesuit
tradition. It was established in 1841 as St. John's College by the Right Rev. John Hughes,
Coadjutor-Bishop (later Archbishop) of New York, on old Rose Hill Manor in the village of
Fordham, then part of Westchester County. The name Fordham is derived from the Anglo-Saxon
words "ford" and "ham," meaning a wading place or ford by a settlement. Rose Hill is the name
given to the site in 1787 by Robert Watts, a wealthy New York merchant, in honor of his family's
ancestral home of the same name in Scotland. The College, which opened with a student body of
six, was originally staffed by diocesan clergy. In 1846, the year the New York State Legislature
granted the School a charter, Bishop Hughes recruited five Jesuits from St. Mary's College in
Kentucky and other communities, and the Society of Jesus then assumed the administration of the
College. The name was officially changed to Fordham University in 1907. In 1969 the board of
trustees was reorganized to include a majority of non-clergy members.
Enrollment (Fall 2003): 15,814 students attend 11 schools, with 8,486 undergraduates and 7,328
graduate students. Approximately 4,253 live in University-managed housing, including 1,960
full-time freshmen.
Campuses: Rose Hill, the original campus, adjacent to Little Italy, the Bronx Zoo and the New
York Botanical Garden, is situated on 85 acres in the Bronx. About 6,240 undergraduates and
graduates attend with 2,856 in residence. The Lincoln Center Campus was established in 1961
on eight landscaped acres adjacent to Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. About 8,000
professional and undergraduate students attend, with approximately 853 in residence in
apartment-style housing. The Tarrytown Campus was officially established in 2002 when
Marymount College consolidated with Fordham. Since 1975, Tarrytown has housed branches of
the graduate schools of education, social service and business administration. Undergraduates
attend the all-women's Marymount College of Fordham University or the co-ed Fordham College
of Liberal Studies. The Louis J. Calder Center Biological Field Station at Armonk, NY, is a 114-
acre field station with a 10-acre lake and laboratories.

Columbia University is one of the top academic and research institutions in the United States,
conducting research in medicine, science, the arts, and the humanities. It includes three
undergraduate schools, thirteen graduate and professional schools, and a school of continuing
education. Columbia Law School has been internationalizing U.S. legal education since its
founding before the American Civil War. Long before global markets and instant worldwide
communications made these fields critical to the everyday work of practicing lawyers, and
decades before most U.S. law schools offered even introductory courses in international and
comparative law, the Columbia faculty and its students were developing the precepts and
principles of both public international law and international economic law. Today, Columbia’s
commitment to international and comparative law, reflected in the breadth of its permanent
faculty and visiting professors who specialize in these fields, in the scope of its international
curriculum and law library collections, in its rich and innovative study abroad programs, and in
its path-breaking regional centers, has no peer among U.S. law schools
