Service Learning trips at the GSB provide students with lasting impact

I thought you might enjoy this short video (about 5 minutes long) which features several MBA students talking about their experiences during their Service Learning Trips.

So what *is* on Dean Bob Joss' iPod?

Brianna from Maryland asked if I could post Dean Joss' interview because she (and probably many of you) missed the live broadcast (see my post dated 3 Feb 2008).

I'm happy to oblige. Listen to a streaming version of the show.

The list includes a great variety of music and during the interview Bob shares the story of how his piano teacher allowed him to play songs more appealing to a teenager such as "Pine Top's Boogie Woogie." During his 7 years in Australia Bob became very fond of Australian music and so "Waltzing Matilda" and "I Still Call Australia Home" made it on to his list as well.

Enjoy,
