It’s been a cold start to the year for most of the country, Columbus included. The first two days of “Spring” semester were cancelled due to cold weather (not snow) which seemed like a great thing initially. Turns out, we had to make up those days. After all, we are paying to go to class, not to have classes cancelled. The make-up days have been on Fridays, a day usually for catching up and getting ready for the next week. All that to say, it’s been a busy start to the year.
The new brand for Fisher College of Business centered on “Go Beyond” was launched this week. There was a launch party where Fisher unveiled the new brand and also had speakers like Craig Bahner-Chief Marketing Officer of Wendys, John Lowe-CEO of Jeni’s and Mark Anderson-Chief Experiential Officer of Omelet to Go share how they have been impacted by the Fisher experience and how going here has helped propel their careers.
Hearing from these Fisher alums and seeing the success they have obtained in their careers was refreshing and inspiring. It was a chance to think beyond the moment (of cold days and feeling behind on reading) and to remember why I am here and to dream about what’s next. It was encouragement for us in the MBA program to Go Beyond the circumstance and keep pushing towards greatness/success, however those terms may be defined.
