DR. GOULD, I PRESUME: Michael Gould, chairman and chief executive officer of Bloomingdale’s, will deliver the keynote address at LIM College’s 73rd annual commencement exercises on May 31 at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in Manhattan. Gould will receive LIM College’s Distinguished Achievement Award and an honorary doctor of commercial science degree. In addition, Manhattan borough president Scott M. Stringer will be awarded an honorary doctor of humane letters degree.
“Mr. Gould’s fashion and retail leadership is legendary. Since he credits the launch of his retail career to an internship, and internships are a key component of a LIM College education, he will undoubtedly be inspirational to our students,” said Elizabeth S. Marcuse, president of LIM College.
