I’ve been told my approach to mentoring with the Cameron Executive Network has been drastically different than that of typical mentors. Now, this is not to assume that my method will be a good fit for every mentor or mentee, and I continue to learn and grow as a mentor. But, I hope in sharing my experience, potential mentors will see that the program allows for flexibility, and it’s possible to creatively maximize our mentorship reach.

This is true for many Cameron School of Business events, such as: Business Week; sponsored trips to various places, including Wall Street; activities like the regional and national Sales Competition; and the academic programs throughout the year in numerous foreign countries, including China.

Although Matt Mylott ’07, ’18M is a native Californian, he’s very much at home on the East Coast. All it takes is a stroll down Chancellor’s Walk to remind him of what he loves most about life here.
For the last 14 years, Cameron’s PMBA program has challenged MBA student teams with a “real-world” consulting project known as the Learning Alliance (LA). The LA project pairs regional businesses with teams of PMBA students that provide comprehensive analysis of the companies’ business processes and competitive environments, as well as strategic recommendations for growth and/or profit improvement. The SBTDC is instrumental in selecting LA clients and helping to manage the relationships between the clients and the student teams.

When Stephen Harper officially retired at the end of the spring 2018 semester, his career at UNCW spanned six chancellors, four deans and more than 40 years of teaching students the finer points of business and entrepreneurship. Coincidentally, Harper, the Duke Energy/Betty Cameron Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship in the Cameron School of Business, celebrated his 70th birthday just two months after UNCW observed the 70th anniversary of the date it first opened its doors, Sept. 4, 1947.

This time last year, I took the opportunity to write about Cameron’s partnerships with - and impact - in the community. This year, I would like to explore Cameron’s partnerships and impact in the world.
A quick look through Cameron’s current Strategic Plan, as well as UNCW’s Strategic Plan, UNCW’s Vision Statement, Cameron’s Mission Statement and other planning documents, it is easy to find the strategic initiative of having a “global mindset.”
