The week my Managerial Accounting final was taken, I got to celebrate by going to the annual Haas Gala event. This year, UC Regent Richard C. Blum was honored as well as recent Nobel Prize Winner Oliver Williamson. Here I am with my fellow EWMBAA executive team members Amy Daily, EWMBAA Secretary, and Vijay Bhaskaran, EWMBAA Vice-President. Who is that other guy you ask? That's Professor Paul Tiffany, whom has taught all three of us some form of Strategy (yes, it's for his class that I have this 25+ page paper due). Three out of four executive team members this year have been challenged to consider new ideas by Professor Tiffany's teaching. All kidding aside, it's great to be able to mingle with alumni, professors, and other distinguished honorees and guests at the gala event.
As for elections, it's hard to believe that a year has passed since I hit my own campaign trail and ran for EWMBAA President. Now, we're in the process of listening to campaign speeches by new candidates, including our very own blogger Divyang Agrawal. Good luck Div!
