MSPM in the KNOW: August 27, 2019

Welcome to Fall 2019 Semester!
Welcome back returning students and new students! I hope you all had a relaxing summer and are ready to begin the fall semester. Last Thurs-day we had the honor of welcoming 40 new MSPM and 5 GCPM students. I encourage everyone to check out their Student Bios.

We thank Ms. Duaa Elzeney for leading this year’s successful recruit-ment and admissions process for the program! Duaa’s hardwork allowed us continue taking pride in the caliber of the students we attract.  Also noteworthy of thanks are our alumni: Wilbert Davis (’16), Mina Panahi (’19), Douglas Robertson (’19) as well as our current students: Marie Chambers, Tahirah Dickenson, Amanda Rollins, Bing Xia and Lu Zhang, for helping us during the Orienta- tion. The number of alumni and students who are always willing to give back to the program is truly one of the things that make us stand out. So thank you!  
Fall 2019 Blackboard Collaborate Session Schedule
As announced last week, the Blackboard Collaborate Session sche-dule for Fall 2019 is now available. Collaborate sessions are 60- minute live sessions designed for the online and campus students to en-gage with their professors on a weekly basis and to supplement their learning. It is highly recommended for all MSPM students and the best time to ask your professors follow-up questions regarding your course. Please see schedule below.  If you are unable to attend the Blackboard Collaborate session, you may still access the recorded sessions via
Blackboard.  

Student Engagement Events

This academic year, we will offer three main student engagement series open to all GWSB graduate students across our different MBA for-mats, specialized masters degree programs, and graduate certificates.  The events are structured to foster informal conversation as well as some structured learning.  

ROUNDTABLES – Taking place in the beautiful City View Room on campus, each roundtable features discussion leaders (alumni, recruiters/employers, corporate partners, etc.).  Students are assigned to a discus-sion leader in advance of the event and are given three questions crafted by the discussion leader to research/reflect upon in advance, along with the discussion leader’s picture and bio.  At the event, after an informal networking reception, students sit with their assigned discussion leader and discuss the questions. 

ONLINE HAPPY HOURS – We recognize many of you cannot always come to campus to enjoy an event.  And neither can many of our students and alumni, who are spread out all over the world!  So we offer online happy hours a couple of times a semester to bring students, alum-ni, faculty and staff together to network online — just bring your own beverage!  

MEET AND GREETS – We want to give you a chance to break bread with students and chat informally.  So we have also added into our events schedule a couple of breakfasts and dinners, where you can do just that!  These events are brought to you by an amazing student enga-gement team — Daniel Sterowski, Assistant Director; and Morganne Harrison and Tiffany Connell, Coordinators.  

Please see attached flyer for full information and mark your calendar for these events now! GWSB_GraduateStudentEngaEvents_Flyer_v4_080819__1_.pdf
