Dean's Blog

January 20, 2012

Last week I was invited to participate in a wide-ranging discussion of economic and business issues on Almanac's business panel on Twin Cities Public Television with Chris Farrell and Professor Jeanne Boeh of Augsburg. One topic we discussed was the growing pervasiveness of social media and the behavioral trends it is spawning. We rely so much on peer to peer networks and on machine intelligence to guide us on what and where and how we consume - and even who we share our lives with.

I'm writing today from Chicago where I am meeting with alumni, some recent, others from as far back as 1939. Here and wherever I go these days the first topic of conversation is our wonderful holiday card video, which today surpassed one million views on YouTube!

As we head off to enjoy the upcoming holiday with family and friends, I wanted to sincerely thank everyone who has helped me in my new role as interim dean of the Carlson School of Management.

Having lived in Minnesota for 20 years I understand that our culture is not one in which we like to brag about ourselves. However, I simply cannot contain my excitement over seeing the Carlson School listed by Bloomberg Businessweek as the top school in the country for 2011 MBA job placement. I only wish this national recognition for something that we have always done well - preparing our students for the workplace - would have delved into why we are so successful.

Technology and social media are making it easy to connect far more frequently than once a year. Through our website, Facebook page, Twitter accounts, LinkedIn groups, YouTube channel, you can now come back to campus -- virtually -- at any time and without having to circumnavigate the LRT construction.
