How often do you get to interact with the world’s most influential business leaders?
If you’ve ever dreamed of starting your own business, then you know that often times entrepreneurs risk everything – their credit, their assets, their word – just to pursue an idea that might change the way an industry does things, and they know full well that the plan can flop, that thousands or even millions may be written off at the fiscal year’s end. In fact, the majority of entrepreneurs will fail at some point in their lives – it’s just human nature, yet what separates those who succeed and those who fail can be summed up in one word: character. And what better way to refine your character and spirit than by learning directly from the best?
The Daniels College of Business invites business leaders from around the world to speak and interact with MBA students, giving students an exposure to some of the greatest character in the business.
Here’s Julie Clark, creator of Baby Einstein, a maker of multimedia products and toys that went from a $18,000 start-up to a company worth $400 million, talking to student’s at the annual “Voices of Experience” event.
She’s just one of many who attended the event. Others included Jarl Mohn, CEO of NPR, Walter Bettinger, CEO of Charles Schwab, and Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota Motor North America, just to name a few.
It’s clear that her character contains more than just persistence -it’s humility, the ability to listen, charisma, innovation, and guts. At Daniels, the MBA is more than learning about leadership – it’s about surrounding yourself with the most successful and innovative people to the point where you can’t help but to become one yourself. So what are you waiting for? Take your ambitions off hold and start pursuing them at the Daniels College of Business.
