Local Leaders Inspire in Speaker Series
Part-time MBA students have access to dynamic members of the Cleveland business community through the Leadership Speaker Series, a program that brings local leaders to campus several times each semester. The topics discussed tie into coursework in a timely manner, and have included such areas of interest as statistics, accounting, and organizational behavior. Many of the speakers have ties to Weatherhead or to Case Western Reserve University, and they have included employees of Fifth Third Bank, Cleveland Clinic, and more, and even our own Fred Collopy, PhD, a professor of information systems and senior dean of Weatherhead!
What Is it Like to Be a Weatherhead Part-Time MBA Student?
At Weatherhead, small class sizes mean one-on-one interaction with academic pioneers and industry leaders. Our faculty excel in teaching as well as research, and the opportunity to share their insights and excitement in the most up-to-date and creative areas of management studies is one that Weatherhead students prize. The diversity of our student body, too, enriches the graduate experience with points of view from countries and cultures around the world. Because students tend to learn from one another as much as from teachers, teamwork is a prominent feature of many classes; Weatherhead students form friendships within and outside of the classroom.
