Connecting the dots

Few weeks ago, I got an email from Panera  Bread about the launch of Panera 2.0. Panera describes Panera 2.0 as a “series of integrated technologies to enhance the guest experience for all consumers no matter how they choose to use Panera.” The press release added that “By separating the experience for ‘to-go’ and ‘eat in’ […]

Real World Experience

This past May, I took a week-long intensive class to get another class out of the way. The course I took was called Marketing Promotion and Communication. Because we had to fit an entire semester into five short days, the professor organized the class into both lecture and project work. The first half of our […]

It’s already August?

What a busy summer it has been! I received a new position in my company, I completed a six-week course, and my sister got married! I can’t believe summer has flown by (I feel like I say this every year). First, I received a new position at Raytheon in early June. I am now a […]

5 Years Strong

I have the amazing experience of what’s known around Bentley as the Double Falcon (though not yet official). I loved Bentley enough the first time around to come back for more, and I was reminded of why I love it so much a few weekends ago. Reunion Weekend. It was as much fun as I […]

MBA Students: Not Making the Grade?

I recently came across an article in Inc. about a study done by Hult International Business School. The study focused on the criticisms C-suite execs have for MBAs, and in particular, notes that students are ill-prepared for the workplace. The research focused on three key points as part of the problem; they’re noted below, along […]

Creating Force Multipliers

Since our trip to France, the Bentley MBA cohort has been focused on course work in the Leadership theme. The Leadership theme features four classes: “Thinking about Thinking,” (which was actually featured in the Wall Street Journal)”Leadership Fundamentals,” “Leadership Ethics,” and “Global Strategy.” Class work and research has been dedicated to understanding leadership styles, understanding […]

Business success through art

Do you think that MBA studies are only about crunching numbers? It may be true; however, my MBA experience was slightly different. One of my classes, Thinking about Thinking, was such an intriguing and exciting part of the program so that I would hardly believe that it can be in an MBA program. The majority […]
