Thinking Outside the Box Seminar

In recent years, we have seen more and more applicants interested in non-profit, sustainable energy, and other non-traditional M.B.A. career paths. A few years ago, students joined together to launch a day-long event to bring together such like-minded individuals and this past Friday (April 2), Simon hosted the 3rd Annual “Thinking Outside the Box” Seminar. The event was organized by Simon Net Impact and Simon National Black M.B.A. Association and co-sponsored by the Simon Career Management Center and the University’s Center for Entrepreneurship. Alumni panelists included:

Mr. Christopher Burns, Marketing Consultant
Dr. Mary-Beth A. Cooper, VP of Student Affairs, Rochester Institute of Technology
Ms. Denise Fitzgerald, CEO, Kalieda
Mr. Paul Goldner, CEO, Leading Sustainable Solutions
Ms. Tamu Brown-Hutchinson, Director of Information Technology and Resource Management, Center for Youth
Ms. McKenzie Keenan, Executive Director, Young Audiences

Additional participants included:
