Be Selfish and Report

By Borijan Borozanov Over the last several months I noticed a very intriguing phenomenon.

Student Spotlight: Giacomo Paccione

This week, we asked one of our first trimester MBA students, Giacomo Paccione, to share a little about himself and what he carries in his Thunderbird backpack. What is your home country?

Hey T-Birds, Hope you guys are having a great weekend. HAPPY EASTER to all of you. We almost at the end of the trimester and I am sure that everyone must be knee deep in finishing the assignments and taking quizzes. At such times, I remember what Prof Dash had told our class just before […]
