Note From Dean Johnson
Spring Break is around the corner! After students complete their final exams this week, many of them will be travelling around the globe.
Professor Ray Friedman is leading a group of students to Shanghai on his China Project Course, where they'll be conducting consulting projects for companies such as FedEx and Microsoft. Others will be headed to Israel with Professor Mark Cohen to visit with a variety of businesses. Project Pyramid teams are travelling to Columbia, Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Guatemala to work with local enterprises. These trips are a wonderful way for students to broaden their global perspectives and learn about the opportunities and challenges of doing business on an international scale.

Valentine's Day Podcast
The various dimensions of the “b-school relationship” are well-documented, and the general impression is not a good one. And yet, a disproportionate amount of students find lasting love at Vanderbilt.
