UW MBA Program Lines up Weekly Executive Speakers This Semester

October 17, 2017

University of Wyoming Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program students will have the opportunity to participate in executive roundtable discussions this fall semester and receive real-world learning experiences.

“The opportunity our students have to speak with individuals of such high caliber is invaluable,” says Tanner Parmely, MBA Program coordinator. “Networking involves the ability to articulate technical knowledge as well as implement soft skills -- something that all graduates entering the competitive marketplace should be able to do.”

In past years, MBA speakers have represented diverse industry segments, including Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead, Secretary of State Ed Murray, energy CEOs, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, financial service representatives and sports industry executives.

“Students engage in roundtable discussions that cover a variety of topics such as executive decision making, strategy development and business ethics,” Parmely says.

The Friday, Oct. 20, MBA Program speaker will be Matthew Kaufman, a partner at Hathaway and Kunz LLP in Cheyenne.

Kaufman focuses on business, corporate, transactional and litigation matters. With an advanced Master of Laws degree in entrepreneurial law, Kaufman represents entrepreneurs, startup and emerging companies, and also established businesses and companies on complex transactions and strategies.

Last week’s speaker was UW Cowgirl basketball Coach Joe Legerski. He discussed his 14-year tenure in leading the UW women’s program, effective leadership, managing people, learning through good times and failure, and ethical decision making.

The UW MBA Program is currently accepting applications for the 2018 fall semester and will admit qualified students on a rolling basis until the cohort group is filled or June 30, whichever comes first, Parmely says.
