  • Changing of the Guard

    associated image

    Good morning, all. As the school year has come to an end, and the Illinois MBA Class of 2011 transitions into the work force, a changing of the guard has occurred. Kristen Lisa, now a member of AMD, performed extraordinarily as the digital marketing producer, keeping the masses informed on all the happenings and updates within the Illinois MBA community. She will be sorely missed, but we wish her the best of luck and much success in all of her endeavors.

    With that being said, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Josh McDonald, a Nashville, Tennessee native, and I earned my Bachelor of Science from the University of Louisville in business management and international business (Spanish). In May, I completed the first year of my MBA at U of I, while instructing undergraduate students in Economics 199, enjoying involvement in Illinois Business Consulting (IBC) and as an Illinois MBA Student Ambassador, serving as a liaison for new and potential MBA candidates.


    During my internship at Caterpillar this summer, I will be checking in periodically to update everyone on the new and interesting developments within the Illinois MBA and its students, as the new digital marketing producer. Hopefully, the content within the blog will be found interesting, informative, and entertaining!



    Thank you, and until next time...
