Spring semester 2012

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
With the new year and Spring semester, I'm sure many of you have goals that you'd like to accomplish. Whether you're working for better grades, trying to get into shape, or trying to eat healthier meals.

The Manning School of Business also has a few things we're trying to accomplish. Our department is rapidly growing, and we'd like to involve our students in any way possible!


NEW FACEBOOK PAGE!

MSB.jpgAs the heading says, we have a new Facebook page! As most of you probably know by now, we are no longer the College of Management. Due to the great amount of generosity of Robert Manning and his wife, we have changed our name to the "Manning School of Business." Signs around campus and on the UML website have already been updated.

Here is the link to the new Facebook page:

http://www.facebook.com/UMLMSB

The old College of Management page will NO LONGER be updated!






Student Activities and Involvement

      The Manning School of Business truly cares about your education and your college experience. That is why we are currently making an effort to make the college life fun!

      This semester, we'd like to create some sort of annual event for students. Whether it's a concert, movie night, dance, etc., we know that this will make the semester more enjoyable. (Especially since the weather may not be too great in February/March)

      As for the type of event we will hold, we are accepting all ideas. There is a poll on the  Facebook page that will allow us to gather input from you. If you do NOT have a Facebook page, feel free to shoot me an e-mail! ( Matthew_lawson1@student.uml.edu ) You may also leave a comment on this blog entry.



There are many other things I'd like to talk about, but I will mention them in following blog entries.

Hope your first couple of weeks are going well!

This past weekend, UMass Lowell held Commencement for the class of 2011. This event was absolutely amazing. There was excitement in the air as students, staff, and family took their seats inside of the Tsongas Center.

Although all of the speakers were incredible, one of the speakers stood out to me the most. Robert Manning is a COM Alumni, and is currently the CEO for Boston-based MFS Investments. Mr. Manning spoke about how he rose to the top, and he also spoke of how to become a success out in the real world.

Below is the video of his speech. I suggest watching it, because he makes a lot of great suggestions to students and graduates. (In my opinion, his most helpful point was that about expecting the unexpected.)





Robert and Donna Manning have recently invested $5,000,000 to the upcoming Robert Manning School of Business here at UMass Lowell. 

The College Of Management is the place to be!

Cooperative Education comes to the College of Management!

Beginning in Fall 2011 COM students will have the opportunity be part of an academically integrated cooperative education program.  The first cohort of 30 students will be enrolling in the one-credit Professional Development Seminar which will provide students with the necessary structure, resources and support to successfully secure and engage in their first co-op work experience.  Students will choose between 3 or 6 month co-ops, gain a competitive edge in the job market and earn a salary while on co-op which can assist in offsetting college expenses.

Co-op exposes students to the real world of work and to career options while promoting a sense of independence and professional maturity.  It also increases opportunities for career positions following graduation.  A 2010 Research Brief from the Collegiate Employment Research Institute at Michigan State University reported that internship and co-ops are replacing the traditional starting job that most new college graduates entered just five years ago. 

To learn more about the co-op option in COM, students can contact Martina Witts, Assistant Director of Co-op (Management) in the Career & Co-op Center at Martina_Witts@uml.edu .
