Tomorrow is a big day for me for two reasons.
First, I am meeting with Professor Tony Rucci to discuss my career interests and to learn more about corporate strategy and business development. Dr. Rucci is one of my professors in MBA 860: Organizational Behavior and Leadership Effectiveness, but this is not his only claim to fame. Prior to joining the Fisher faculty, he was the Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy & Business Development at Sears Roebuck & Company. He was also Chairman of the board of directors for Sears de Mexico and served on the boards of Sears Canada, Western Auto, and Grupp Carso’s retail board. Before his Sears days, he was the SVP of Human Resources at Baxter International. Needless to say, I am really excited to sit down with him and discuss my career options.
Second, my first accounting team project is due. We finished the project a few days ago, so for the past two days we have been able to work on other assignments. (Note: Several of the teams I know did not work ahead on this project and will be burning the midnight oil to finish on time. Good luck to them.) I’d also like to take this time to say that I probably have the best team in Fisher -- no joke. My group is hardworking, collaborative, intelligent, efficient, and FUN. Not every group is so lucky. My team members include:
- Kevin Lawrence – This week’s Accounting All-Star
- Meng-Tse (Joseph) Cheng
- Alison Guzman
- Ian Menchen
Now back to the books…
