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.
This year, we are celebrating our 70th anniversary. Lake Forest Graduate School of Management opened its doors in 1946 as the Lake Forest College Industrial Management Institute (IMI) with twenty-seven students. Today, more than 500 students are enrolled in the Leadership MBA program at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management (LFGSM) and even more business leaders are participating in our Corporate Learning Solutions programs.
We owe our seventy years of graduate education and leadership development to more than 10,000 students and alumni. To celebrate our 70th anniversary, we want to hear your stories about the impact of your LFGSM degree.
