We are halfway through the Fall 2015 term and eager to share what’s new at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management (LFGSM). In this edition of the newsletter, we highlight ten new faculty members, a variety of upcoming events and exciting developments in Corporate Learning Solutions and the MBA program.
Class of 2015 alum Jose Daniel Amata (Joel) shared some of the trepidation and adversity he experienced when he first applied for his MBA at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management in his valedictorian speech. In the end, he says this hard decision had a serious pay-off. We asked Jose to share his inspirational story with us.
