After leaving Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime has announced that he’ll teach at Cornell University in New York.
Just a couple months after retiring as President of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime has announced that he’ll start teaching at Cornell University in New York.
Reggie shared the news via Twitter saying that he’ll be teaching and mentoring students starting this academic year. Having graduated from Cornell back in 1983, his first talk as their Leader in Residence will commence on October 21 at Cornell’s Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management. Additionally, the talk is free and open to the public.
During his talk, he’ll “share principles for you to master so you can cultivate your own leadership capability,” says Cornell’s official events page.”The principles are applicable to any situation, including now while you are a student or in your future endeavors.”
Regginator is going back to school! @CornellDyson just announced that I will be their inaugural Leader in Residence. Looking forward to teaching and mentoring during this upcoming academic year. Great way for me to give back to @Cornell and @CALS.
