Walton MBA

Apparently people read this because they keep asking me to update.

I'm currently in the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, earning my Masters in Business Administration.

All of my classes are held in the Willard J. Walker Hall and you can check out the building and the ridiculous technology we employ.

I am currently taking:
Business Analytics
Economics of Supply Chain
Financial Markets & Valuation
Retail & Consumer Products Supply Chain Management
Retail Consumer Marketing

People whom I've met:

Joe O'Conner : Remember the Crest Spinbrush? ($6 battery toothbrush) He sold that to Proctor & Gamble for over $550 Million

Al Spain: Original COO (Ret.) of Jet Blue Airways

Doug Degn: Executive Vice President (Ret.), Food, Consumables, and Hardlines Merchandising, Walmart Stores, Inc.

Jim Olsen: Chief Communications Officer for U.S. Airways (Managed "Miracle on Hudson" crisis)

I've also brushed elbows with Governor Mike Beebe at an International Business Forecast Luncheon.

Also, I'm only two months into the program and will graduate in May 2011.
