This Working Capital Conversation is sponsored by the Jack Welch Management Institute, a leading online MBA program designed to provide students and organizations with the proven methodologies, immediately actionable practices, and respected credentials needed to win in the most demanding global business environments.
It’s a question that educators at every level – from the earliest pre-school to the most advanced PhD – have debated: How do you make education matter?
For today’s business schools, the question is more urgent than ever. In a world where businesses are regularly started in garages by high school students – and for that matter, college dropouts – what can our MBA and Executive Education programs offer that helps students become better businesspeople. Indeed, what does it mean to become a better businessperson, when we live in a time where what often matters is less “what you know” and more “what can you do?”
One person who sits at this intersection of action and teaching is Jeff Brooks. His so-called “day job” is as a finance executive at Proctor and Gamble, where he has served as the Divisional CFO of two separate multi-billion dollar divisions and held operational roles in three continents. Brooks also serves as an Adjunct Professor at the Jack Welch Management Institute teaching Finance and Accounting to MBA students.
