What Is Happening in Peru? A Flooding Season

By Laura Aviles, Staff Writer I would have loved to write about the opportunities for investment in Peru by throwing out some numbers from the World Bank.

Regional Night Has Officially Been Revived

By Nash Wills, Co-Editor Controversy, criticism, stirring the pot—necessary evils that are never fun to cause, provide, or do. Like most, I would prefer to not dole out negative feedback, especially towards colleagues and classmates. Somewhat ironically though, who else can you constructively criticize other than those you know and work with? Isn’t criticism directed […]

The Seven Tudes and Paradiplomacy: Why Our Arizona Cities Win?

Block and Tackle: How to Prevent Overcommitting

By Mary Grace Richardson, Co-Editor I love things like this, I thought when Professor Suzanne Peterson assigned our class to participate in feedback evaluations.

The Psychology of Moving

By Lauren Herber, Editor-in-Chief It’s March 30th. How did we get here so quickly? If I push away the fog of disbelief and confusion, I can vaguely remember a semester full of trials, triumphs, new experiences, laughter, and course work. I know it happened, but it feels like I just started my final semester here […]

Not very many people in America cared about the first day of spring on March 20.

This past Monday […]

By Chris Barton, Co-Editor Should a B-school education include an education in ethics? In the mid 2000s, the egregious actions of people like Dennis Kozlowski of Tyco and the leadership at Enron had people asking just this question. Many blamed the curriculum of MBA programs for at best allowing, and at worst encouraging the unethical […]

A Super Tuesday in New York

By Laura Aviles, Staff Writer Spring break was just in time for me. After having passed through one of the hardest times of my life, I thought to myself, “Yes, this is just in time.” And for me, spring break was not just an inventory process to increase efficiency and decrease waste, although some could say that the […]
