Although the academic year is drawing to a close, there are many reasons to stay in touch. From Commencement to Executive Education opportunities, to online Webinars with our outstanding faculty members, our community offers many ways to continue your involvement.
The excitement around the Commencement countdown has begun. This year the Weatherhead School will host a day-long celebration for our graduates, beginning with a breakfast at the Peter B. Lewis Building, and concluding with the school’s diploma ceremony at the Veale Center. The day’s agenda can be found on the Commencement Web site. We encourage faculty, staff, students, alumni and Weatherhead friends to join us for our Day of Celebration.
Our Weatherhead Executive Education programs continue to cover crucial issues facing organizations today, from strategy and innovation to global management and leadership. Visit our Web site for details regarding some of our upcoming programs including:
Last month U.S. News & World Report released its annual rankings of America’s Best Graduate Schools. The Weatherhead School placed 59th in the ranking of MBA programs. The school also was ranked in two of the specialty areas, 7th in Nonprofit Management and 20th in Information Systems.
Our ad campaign featuring our faculty members continues. Jim Rebitzer, economics chair and Frank Tracy Carlton Professor of Economics, was featured in March and Peter Ritchken, banking and finance chair and Kenneth Walter Haber Professor of Finance, will be highlighted in April. Professor Ritchken will host a free Webinar on May 8, “Forecasting credit spreads.” You can register online.
We encourage you to visit the Weatherhead calendar for details regarding events at our school. We look forward to seeing you or hearing from you.
And, do plan to visit our school whenever the opportunity arises.
With warm regards,
