October 31 - KACC Networking Breakfast for Executives, Entrepreneurs & Small Business Owners

Join the Kellogg Alumni Club of Chicago for a breakfast discussion and networking session with Associate Professor Mike Mazzeo, co-author of The Roadside MBA.  This event is open to all Kellogg alumni and current students in Kellogg's Part-Time MBA program.

Mike Mazzeo is one of three distinguished professors,including Paul Oyer, Stanford Graduate School of Business, and Scott Schaefer, University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business, who co-authored the book,Roadside MBA: Backroad Lessons for Executives, Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners.

In 2010, the authors correctly identified that most MBA Case Studies typically reference only the largest players in the market: Procter & Gamble, Ford Motor Company, Microsoft, etc. Accordingly, they decided to take their show on the road and meet key decision makers operating at small to mid-sized businesses across America. Once they found them, they applied the same MBA strategy frameworks reserved for larger company case studies - to these businesses. We hope you'll join us to learn the very important insights they uncovered
