Working with Local Companies To Solve Real-life Problems

Midland University’s MBA capstone experience is an opportunity for students to use the skills built throughout the program to work alongside our capstone corporate partners.

Students will use what they’ve learned thus far and then apply that knowledge to solve real-life business problems.

The capstone experience is beneficial for a career in any industry for a variety of reasons. 

The Impact of Economics in a Changing World

For those who don’t have a lot of economics background, I like to use an analogy. I tell them; imagine you are in the business of competitive sailboat racing. Your success depends on two angles. 

The first is how well you understand the capabilities of your boat. How good of a sailor you are and how do you make decisions when sailing your boat?

Marketing in the Technological World

If you have any entrepreneurial aspirations, or a desire to add an extra value to your current organization, then you should consider taking Midland University’s Marketing Management because marketing is at the heart of everything.

Anyone in the business world can have a flawless product, but if you don't have a product that can sell in the marketplace and your target market chooses to go with the competition, then none of the rest of it is going to matter. 

Meet Our Faculty: Avinash Atholi

For as long as I can remember I have always had an interest in economics. I often joke that I started learning economics from the womb because my mother was an economics professor for 35 years and the principal of the college she taught at in India where I grew up. 

Before coming to Omaha in 2007, I worked at PepsiCo. It was a great learning experience on how individuals make their decisions and choices. I have been working at First National Bank since 2007 and being part of a bank has meant exposure to all aspects of macro economic activities. 

Meet Our Marketing Faculty: Jeffrey Frohwein

It was not a straight path for me, but I think ultimately it helped me because I gained a wide variety of experience. After college, I worked in purchasing for catalog companies. Yes, I know it may sound like ancient news, but there was a thing before the internet called the catalog and it functioned essentially the same way.

Student Experience: An Unexpected Business Lesson

Last week I wrote a blog about my new job, so it seemed appropriate this week to tell you the story of how I got fired.

I should back up.

Student Experience: Abstract Goals to Real Opportunities

It has been a long time since I updated the blog. In fact, it's been a full two terms since my last post, which was over eighteen weeks ago. They have been among the busiest eighteen weeks of my life, and I'm excited to share these many changes with you.

Student Experience: Variety in the Program

Just days past one year into my MBA, and I’m already more than halfway done.

Some of my classmates and I were discussing our progress at our most recent in person session. All of us remember our previous school experiences, and we recall how everything seemed to go on and on. Weeks dragged into semesters dragged into years, and it just felt never ending.
