Roughly 40 students packed into Room 126 for the MBAA’s second Town Hall Event of the year. Some came to ask questions about the coming election. Some came to air grievances. And some came for the delightful sandwich wraps from a local eatery. (I place myself firmly in the sandwich camp.)
Whatever the motivation, the event turned into an exciting free-for-all, as first and second year students debated many of the hot button issues of daily MBA life. The election was the hottest topic, as many of the potential candidates for the 2010 MBAA board gained a better sense on how the election will be run. Other subjects ran the gamut from the school’s ranking to the MBAA budget.
At the end of the night, the students in attendance walked away informed..and stuffed. Although I still don’t understand the complex color-coded toothpick system, my participation at the event netted me a wrap filled with turkey, cheese, and other goodness. I consider that a sound business investment.
