My teachers pushed me. Hard. Prof. Dubil drilled present value calculations into my brain until I cried. Prof. Bigelow challenged my understanding of strategy and strategic thinking. Dr. Abe made me really dig deep and ask myself how I planned on making difficult ethical decisions. I learned from the best and the brightest, and I graduated with honors. I have since returned to the University of Utah as a proud employee. I help students through their MBA experience, and I am incredibly fulfilled by what I do. It has been a joy to return the help and support I was given. I am a true Ute and so proud to be part of the David Eccles School of Business.

The business school has come a long way since 1964, and I am very proud of how it has been transformed.

I really liked Dr. Facer – it was always a great show.

Memorable was Professor Ivers Bradley. Believe it was economics. Because he was so tall and the ceilings were so low he loved to draw bar graphs to the top of the blackboard and then onto the ceiling. He was a very good professor in addition to being entertaining and memorable.

While in the program, I took MGT 651 (Human Behavior at Work) from Professor Arben Clark. In Arben’s course I became reacquainted with an area I had found very interesting as an undergraduate. After several discussions with Arben, I decided to pursue a doctoral program in organizational behavior.
While finishing my Ph.D. program I again contacted Arben asking what he knew about the faculty job market in western US business schools. Among other things he told me that the U had openings. Ultimately I applied for a position and joined the faculty as assistant professor of management in 1974. Fast forward to 1987. Once more I asked Arben’s advice when considering the school’s deanship. Ultimately I accepted the position.
In sum my interactions with Arben Clark and his advice at three major inflection points in my life had profound impact on my career in many profound ways.
THANK YOU ARBEN!!

The University made it possible for 32 education-hungry people to obtain an education that would not, at that time, be possible without leaving their jobs and going to a University away from home and families. Most of us are now retired, but feel a great gratitude to the University of Utah.
