Me and my friend Gee

MBA team with my new best friend, President Gordon Gee

Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to present at President Gordon Gee’s Pre-game Lunch event as part of a team of Fisher MBA students.  It was amazing! The event began like a pep rally complete with cheerleaders, the band and Brutus Buckeye. Athletic Director, Gene Smith, gave a brief address as did President Gee. Then we went into the Reading Room of the beautiful Thompson Library for some delicious lunch with a side of networking. Our presentation was a huge success (as was the Fisher undergraduate presentation) and we all had a great time!

 So, how did I get to be a part of this presentation? Pretty simple, actually – I took Professor Shashi Matta’s Advertising and Promotions class last spring. Professor Matta’s courses are designed to be “action-based learning” which is a key component of courses at Fisher and throughout Ohio State.  A major component of that class was a live marketing project for a local business, Watershed Distillery. The project itself was very rewarding since we knew we were doing work that would directly benefit a local entrepreneur. As I make my way through my internship/part-time job and my new courses, I continually refer back to all the things I learned in that class and on that project. It was probably the best – and most time consuming – course I have taken at Fisher based on personal growth and professional application. And now, it’s opening opportunities for us as well.  I can’t wait to see what the next unexpected Fisher opportunity will be!

If you read any of my posts from last year, you may recall that I'm a bit of a band geek. Here TBDBIL begins Script Ohio - did I mention that we were given 2 tickets to the game as a 'thank you'?
