MBA Office Updates
I am not sure that we could have had a more perfect weather pattern for your mini summer semester break over the 4th of July, and hope you all had a great few days off! Now you have to gear up for the back half of the semester! Graduating students really need to focus on this last month and not move into the checkout lane before August 4th! Everyone else has electives, finance, accounting, etc that really need you to focus and concentrate. I know it is hard because it is summer, but it is worth it!
Quick meeting before Strategy on Tuesday, July 13 from 5:15-5:50pm to talk about the reception and class gift!
Please return your ballots for class speaker and the Pat Miller award as soon as you can!
Maria Clark gave me a golf analogy for her cohort, which is the 3.5 yr cohort! She has just taken up golf as a new sport! "It-might take-you-forever-to-get-through-but-keep-plugging-along, 3.5yr program students. At least we’re on course and shooting straight – it will just take a little longer to get to that darned flag!"
“It seems safe to say that significant discovery, really creative thinking, does not occur with regard to problems about which the thinker is lukewarm.” — Mary Henle
