Eccles Outdoor Industry Club

I'm on sabbatical for the 13-14 academic year, so no formal "teaching" at the U for me this year.  But I will be doing a couple of things on campus.  For one, I've recently signed on as faculty advisor for the Eccles Outdoor Industry Club for the U of U's full-time MBA program.

I'm excited to give it the full Roadside MBA treatment; that is, we'll get a group of students together, go find companies to talk to, and then discuss how various MBA frameworks apply.  My co-author at Stanford has been doing stuff like this will students there for a couple of years, and he tells me it's going well.  We'll also do some other forms of outreach to the industry.

Here's a link to a blog post I wrote for the Outdoor Industry Club site.  I'll try to post some impressions of club activity as we go along.
