Ask Me Anything

Ask Me Anything - Industry Expert Series

“Ask Me Anything”

Industry Expertise   |   Networking  |  Leadership and Career Development

Industry experts join MBA and MSF students in small-group virtual settings to discuss career paths, successes and lessons learned, and today’s most interesting opportunities.

Each of these sessions is being delivered as a collaboration between the Graduate Business Studies Office and RGSAAB (Rohrer Graduate Student and Alumni Advisory Board).

To request a seat in one of these virtual sessions, please reach out to Jason Salvatore, our Graduate Business Program Coordinator, via GraduateBusinessStudies@rowan.edu.

If you would like to offer to join us as an industry expert at a future Ask Me Anything session, please contact Jennifer Maden, Assistant Dean and Director of Graduate Studies at maden@rowan.edu. 

 

Preparing and Participating in "Ask Me Anything" Sessions

During each of the 1-hour Ask Me Anything sessions, our moderators will pitch 3-4 questions during the first 5-10 minutes, then the remainder of the time will be open Q&A and dialogue with our student participants.

These sessions are intended to be interactive, engaging, and conversational. This is not a webinar! Your camera will be on, you will be part of the discussion, and your participation will help drive the direction of the conversation.

All participants will spend 45 minutes of advance planning prior to the session. You should expect to spend 20-30 minutes doing some research on the invited speaker and their firm and/or industry. The student leader facilitators for each session will connect with participants in advance of the session so that the group can share ideas on priority questions, and encourage everyone to connect via LinkedIn to further the networking and relationship building aspects of the series.

We see this as a great opportunity for our MBA and MS Finance students to build knowledge while also expanding and deepening their professional networks. We are excited to see this new initiative launch!
