Weatherhead Press and Recognition
Weatherhead students, alumni, and faculty are often interviewed for print, radio and online publications or receive recognition and awards. Here are some highlights from this month.
Mike Belsito (MBA 05) had a one-on-one extensive interview with Cool Cleveland Information Officer George Nemeth about his marketing role at Findaway, a company that was featured in a December five-part series in the Plain Dealer about entrepreneurship.
The Weatherhead School of Management was included in a January 8 New York Times article, "M.B.A.'s With Three Bottom Lines: People, Planet and Profit." The article describes the growing emphasis on social responsibility and sustainable enterprise in business schools around the country.
The Weatherhead School of Management was cited as having a "rich history" of combining its MBA program with degrees from other professional schools, in an op-ed essay published in the December 25 Boston Globe. The essay, "Giving MBAs the business" counters the argument that business schools are becoming too theoretical in their education and not teaching the practical skills students need to succeed in the workplace.
Xiadong Yang (MBA, '02) was featured in Crain's Cleveland Business as he heads off to China to launch a new office for Boundless Flight, Inc. The China office comprises 40 people, about 10 full-time employees and 30 contractors. Boundless Flight is a software development company with headquarters in Strongsville, OH.
