Since 2007 I have had the privilege of speaking a couple of times each year to the graduate students attending the SMU Cox School of Business. It’s delightfully rewarding to interact with bright and engaging men and women who are already or will soon be contributing to the success of organizations across the Dallas metroplex.
Following last week’s session, the Business Leadership Center provided the following release:
SMU Cox School of Business
Dallas, TX/USA – September 15, 2016
Joe Jordan, President of Jordan Development, Inc., presented a seminar titled Choices, Dilemmas, and Other Hazards of Decision Making on September 14, 2016 as part of the Edwin L. Cox Business Leadership Center’s programming for Cox MBA students. Through the BLC, Cox graduate students gain insight into various facets of business leadership. BLC instructors are business leaders drawn from prominent national and international companies, who come to the SMU campus to share their extensive knowledge with Cox students.
BLC Instructors include representatives from Jordan Development, Inc., Accenture, Bank of Texas, The Container Store, Friday’s Restaurants, Walmart and many more. Although no class credit is given for attendance, students consistently rate what they have learned from BLC instructors as extremely valuable, and many students say that the BLC was a major factor in their decision to attend Cox.
Mr. Jordan earned a Business Leadership Teaching Excellence Award for his presentation, which means that the students attending rated the seminar as a 4.8 or higher out of a possible “perfect” rating of 5.
