The MBA Now and Then

The MBA of yesteryear….without a PC, without PowerPoint, without a cell phone….how did we do it? How did we organize our case groups without email or shared calendars? Did we actually meet as a team vs. on conference calls? Did everyone even have an answering machine?

I still read The Wall Street Journal….though I prefer it on the iPad. I still use a calculator. I still need the people skills we needed back then.

So, I’m off to my 30th reunion at Columbia. Off to learn some new ways…I’ll be taking the subway just as I did those many years ago, but I am sure we will all be heads down in our smart phones now.

What was I doing then?
