Featured Interviews of Business Professionals
You’re here because you’re looking for the best place to get a solid business education. But we’re here to tell you that education is just the first rung on the ladder. No matter how good your professors are, no matter how updated the curriculum, no matter how cutting edge your capstone project is, the real world is going to have some real surprises waiting for you.
Education is only the first rung on the long ladder of your career. Experience is what keeps you climbing. Experience is the name of the game in business. It’s true everybody is looking to hire grads from the hottest B-schools. But it’s also true that your shiny new diploma means a lot less than the experience under your belt.
You’ve got the smarts and a natural acumen, but until the time you’ve got the kind of business wisdom that can only come from years of experience, you need the next best thing: hearing about it from someone else.
On this page, you’ll find words of wisdom from people who have already got where you want to go. Managers, professors, vice presidents, business owners… people who have spent time in the trenches and absorbed the lessons that the business world has taught them the hard way.
We have entrepreneur Scott Cooney, paving the way in the future of sustainable business models… Jef Bauer also has something to say, as a man with 23 years of the hardest kind of marketing there is—convincing people to swap money for nothing in the casino business… And John Ams, the Executive VP of the National Society of Accountants, lays out the realities of life behind a spreadsheet, along with some revelations that might surprise you.
These businesspeople have decades of experience, and they have taken time out of their busy days to share some thoughts and hard won lessons with you.
