This month Lake Forest Graduate School of Management (LFGSM) CEO and President Jeff Anderson participated in Lake County’s 3rd Annual Leaders Summit. The Leaders Summit attracted more than 175 government, business, academic, and civic leaders to share innovative ideas and best practices, and to collaborate on how to make Lake County prosperous and successful–with a focus on job creation and economic growth.
During the Internet Boom of the late 1990’s, Dr. Lowell Weil, Jr. was working for his father’s podiatry practice, Weil Foot & Ankle Institute. From time to time Dr. Weil attended cocktail parties with some of his friends who were running internet-based businesses. It was at those parties that he first noticed the learning gap between the world of medicine and business.
This year, Lake Forest Graduate School of Management celebrates its 70th anniversary. And because we recognize that we owe our seventy years of achievement in graduate education and leadership development to our more than 10,000 students and alumni, we have invited current students and alumni to “Share Your Lake Forest MBA Impact Story.”
We have received many engaging stories explaining how the Leadership MBA program has impacted our students’ and alumni’s professional and/or personal lives. Here, we share an inspiring success story from one of our alumni. Our LFGSM alumni and students can still submit their stories through April 30, 2016.
