News & Notes
A milestone is defined as "an event marking a significant stage in development." This edition of the newsletter describes four milestones reached by students and alumni of The Richmond MBA.
First, you will read about the Opening Residency, a career-changing experience enjoyed by every student who enters The Richmond MBA. This year, our new cohort focused on a case study about McKesson Medical-Surgical.
Next, we present a post written by Rae Kennedy, a current MBA student who is studying with our partner school in France for the semester. The life-changing experiences are evident in her description of her first few weeks there. We look forward to future posts from Rae.
Third, you will get a sense of the organization-changing work done by Cynthia Cecil through her MBA Capstone Project with Initiatives of Change. Over the last 13 years, our students have completed more than 400 Capstone Projects, making a difference for many organizations in Richmond and beyond.
Finally, our piece on Tracy Doherty's new elective course on storytelling brings all of the above together. Tracy is a graduate of the program who completed Opening Residency, studied abroad for a semester and took on an exciting Capstone Project during her time in the program. We are grateful that she is now sharing her wisdom with the next generation of Richmond MBA students.
