Reporter interviews the highly successful CEO
Reporter: “How did you become a successful CEO?”
CEO : “Two words : good decisions.”
Reporter: “How do you make good decisions?”
CEO : “One word : experience.”
Reporter: “Where do you get experience from ?”
CEO : “Two words : bad decisions.”
Although wrapped as a joke, there is some wisdom in it as well. But how is this story linked with your MBA course ?
The classroom can provide a safe environment to exactly make that type of experience - including good and bad decisions. I want to provide the environment to allow such experienced-based learning and look forward to welcoming you in my class.
