UGA MBA Graduate Counsels Community on How to Attract Students to High Need Career Areas
Over the summer, University of Georgia Masters in Business Administration graduate Jeffrey Fletcher worked under the direction of the Dalton-Whitfield Archway Partnership Higher Education Issue Work Group to examine how the community can interest students in technical education and careers. As part of his research, Jeff interviewed many key stakeholders in the community. He drew from these interviews, his education, and his personal experience as a small business owner and classroom teacher to assist the community in addressing this issue. On August 21, 2011, Jeff presented his work to a room full of community, industry, and education leaders. Jeff's presentation is available in video format here.
