At the end of 2011, Alan Lock and Andrew Jensen, both MBA 11, trekked 570 miles over 28 days from the Antarctic Shoreline to the South Pole. For Lock, the Polar Vision trek—now captured in a new YouTube documentary—was the culmination of a journey that began when he suddenly lost most of his eyesight to macular degeneration at the age of 23 while serving aboard a British submarine. Forced to leave the Royal Navy, Lock [...]

While teaching a course on financial information analysis, Prof. Panos Patatoukas observed that capital market participants and policy makers are increasingly turning to accounting earnings data from corporate financial reports for hints regarding the prospects of the aggregate stock market.

It was so nice to have Zach home and able to relax after the intensity of school and recruiting the past many months. We enjoyed lots of downtime together as a family, but we also took advantage [...]

I’m going to pick right back up from where I left off in my last post on undergrad preparation for the MBA.  That means addressing another oft-asked question we hear from undergraduate students about MBA admissions.
