For the second time this week, a connection between Baylor and the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business popped up on my radar. On Monday, we featured the late Dr. Richard Goode, BA ’37, who spent four years as an economics professor in UC, one of the top economic programs in the world (currently ranked as the top MBA program in the nation).
Today, the spotlight turns to John Eisen, BA ’09. Eisen, an English major/business minor from Minnesota, participated in Chicago Booth’s prestigious Summer Business Scholars Program as a way of sampling what an MBA program might be like. His story is currently featured on the Chicago Booth website (pictured) alongside students from schools such as Michigan, Florida State, the University of Singidunum (Serbia), Universidad Francisco Marroquin and the University of Florence.
For now, Eisen works as a client associate at a Texas-based insurance company while he figures out what the future holds. Having studied abroad in Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, and Cambodia, Eisen hopes to be able to combine his interest in other cultures with his career work — a true understanding of life as vocational stewardship.
Sic ’em, John!
