I’ll start by saying that starting a business isn’t easy. I’ve practically lived off coffee and Redbull for the past three months. It’s literally building something from the ground up. But when it’s finished, and people are enjoying what you’ve created, it’s an awesome feeling.

While capitalism is still favored by the majority of Americans, a January 2016 poll suggested socialism’s popularity is on the rise.

As reported in The Washington Post, a poll asking respondents whether they had a favorable or unfavorable view of socialism and capitalism found capitalism to be the big winner overall. But respondents under 30 years of age decisively embraced socialism.

Is it true you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Or does the Harvard Business Review have it right in its recent article, "The Best Leaders are Constant Learners"?

It is harder to change as you advance in your profession, but as Jack Welch famously said, you need to “change before you have to.”

An interview with David Mathisen, Cameron School of Business Alumnus (B.S. Business Administration with a concentration in Accountancy, 2005; MBA 2011)

How do you feel about your educational experience at Cameron School of Business?

I enjoyed every part of my experience at UNCW and at CSB; the instructors at CSB were probably my favorite part...I felt instructors were informative, challenging, yet, “down to earth.” I could tell many of them had a passion for teaching and my learnings at CSB have transitioned well to the success in my professional career. P.S. -  I heard they made a mandatory “shoes, or at least flip flop and shirt” rule in recent years?  That was cool when they didn’t have that rule...but I understand.

In the summer of 2016, UNCW was chosen to be the host university for the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Fudan University in Shanghai and the UNC university system. UNCW and the Cameron School of Business (CSB) have had an ongoing relationship with Fudan beginning in 2005. Since 2007, Fudan University has sent faculty to teach courses in the Chinese language at UNCW - this year, professor Zhang Bangyin from Fudan is teaching in the Department of World Languages and Cultures. CSB students have consistently accounted for a third to one-half of the students taking Chinese language courses at UNCW, and Dr. George Schell, Professor of Information Systems, has worked with all of the faculty from Fudan over the past eight years.

I am a TABSA student from Spain, and I am currently working to receive a dual degree from the Cameron School of Business at UNCW and my home university, Universidad de Valencia, in Marketing Strategy and International Business. Participating in the Cameron Executive Network (CEN) Program has been one of the best things I have done during my time at UNCW. My mentor has been extremely helpful in explaining the job search process in the US. She started by identifying my skills and capabilities as well as areas of improvement to better my position myself in the business world. She coached me in resume and cover letter writing as well as in internship search and interview skills. Due to her help I was able to get an internship in a tech company in Spain. We will continue to work this year to get an internship in the US.

The Four M's

As I stepped into 890 Broadway for the first time, I was immediately enchanted by the classic elevator that carried me to the little office of one of the greatest ballet companies in the world. This little office, however, is also home to not just amazing artistic talent, but to a job that I had only dreamed of doing until this summer. The opportunity to combine my marketing degree with my lifelong passion for ballet has been incredible, and much like how marketing revolves around the four P’s (product, place, price, promotion), I have found that my internship could be summed up in a similar way, but with four M’s.
