This Week in Entrepreneurship

11 Mar

In MBA-specific news, the formal is on Friday so if you don’t have your tickets yet, purchase them TODAY or forever regret this missed opportunity to have expensive drinks with Wobbekind and Vossen. Sunday is also Selection Sunday in the NCAA basketball world, so gambling opportunities will abound for entrepreneurial students this time next week. If people were into that. And if gambling were legal. Enjoy the week!
