          Every student at Foster liked business a lot… There’s time for much study, but suddenly there’s NOT! For Winter is Coming and with it vacation, But first survive finals with much caffeination. Supply and demand curves a theorem by Bayes, Four P’s and five forces, they’re all in a daze; Then everything’s done thus a change in the mood-- Time for skiing and sleeping and much gratitude… …For PACCAR and Dempsey halls, and our dear mentors, B of A and Eastside Executive Centers Our holiday wish for a brand new “Mackenzie” Is only because of the Foster growth frenzy. Our grads go to work at the best places really From Amazon to PATH to Starbucks to Zulily! Oh the places we study, research, teach, and work Cast out ghosts of Balmer with a satisfied smirk. Heading out we may chance upon Pete Dukes, the Prof For whose kindness and wisdom we all say, “hats off!” There’s teaching award maven Jennifer Koski And Sefcek, Accounting’s own Big Lebowski, Look: Ed Rice, Frank Hodge and Deborah Glassman! Plus Xiao-Ping… Dawn Matsumoto… Thaddeus Spratlen; Foster faculty’s A-plus for research AND for teaching So we shoot for the stars—and we’re not overreaching Our business community’s vibrant indeed; Our students? Work ready and all set to lead. And they’ll LEAD! And they’ll LEAD! And they’ll LEAD LEAD! LEAD! LEAD! Yet there’s still something for their advancement they’ll need. A text, if you will, of no small erudition Available now in a new fifth edition For business success is not mere intuition! They'll come back next month. We shall help them succeed. Then they’ll read, and they’ll read, and they’ll read READ! READ! READ! If our rhyme’s turned out badly, we ask your forgiveness, With warm holiday wishes from the Foster School of Business.

            The University of Washington Foster School of Business welcomed Robert A. Iger, chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company, as the keynote speaker during the 23rd annual Business Leadership Celebration. In his keynote conversation, Iger shared his essential traits of a great leader: curious, optimistic, focused, fair, thoughtful, decisive, risk-taking, courageous, innovative, and a perfectionist to boot. In Q&A with ABC News correspondent Cecilia Vega, Iger embarked on an entertaining meander of topics, ranging from his humble start at ABC four decades ago (when his myopic first boss declared him “not promotable”) to the great leaders who influenced him (including Roone Arledge, Tom Murphy, Michael Eisner and Steve Jobs). He recalled the risk he took to bring “Twin Peaks” to the small screen and the even larger risk that Walt Disney took to bring “Snow White” to the big screen. He noted successful Disney acquisitions of Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm (for a total price tag of more than $15 billion), and shared a laugh at his folly in greenlighting “Cop Rock,” a short-lived TV police musical in the early ’90s. And he celebrated the Disney’s historically successful first animated feature directed by a woman—Jennifer Lee’s “Frozen”—and historic construction of the company’s largest castle ever for Disneyland Shanghai.

                    Meet Lisa Dahlby, MBA 2015 As an undergraduate, Lisa Dahlby majored in journalism and political science, but she had grown up in a family where business topics were discussed around the dinner table. She always knew she would pursue a career in business, so earning an MBA was a long-term goal. When the time came to go for a graduate degree, she decided to look for a part-time program that would allow her to stay actively involved in her career in advertising. The Foster Evening MBA offered not only a high-quality education, but a sense of community. She found professors welcoming and classmates supportive. Her experience at Foster has not only helped her broaden her knowledge of business and given her new skills to apply on the job, but also, she believes, has made her “a better citizen of the world.”
