You would think that working weekends would be a bummer, but last Saturday I had such a great time – at work! A few of us on staff here at TLI alternate working Saturdays to cover class days for our Management of Technology Program. Last Saturday it was my turn. Shortly after class started I had a group come in for an MOT information session with Professor Polla and myself. After our presentation there was a great discussion with a 2010 alum (Michael Bell, from Thomson Reuters) who came in to share his perspective on the program.
As the info session group left, another group of prospective students arrived to sit in on a class session. Professor Beau Farmer, CTO of TSI Inc, was teaching Technology Foresight and Forecasting. After a 15 minute lecture, the prospective students were distributed into the different study groups and participated in a lively workshop and some of them assisted their group’s presentation to the class. After class, the visitors joined the MOT students for lunch, and informal Q & A.
Most of the prospective students have already started filling out their applications, and I am so grateful to Beau Farmer, Mike Bell and the excellent class of 2013 for welcoming and assimilating them into the groups and showing them how dynamic and exciting the MOT experience can be! Working Saturdays really isn’t so bad after all.
