Ready, Set, Network!

Mikaela Houck, Program Assistant

Greetings! My name is Mikaela Houck, and I am one of the newest members of the TMMBA team. I began as Program Assistant just over one month ago, and I work to provide student, faculty and staff support for the program. Now that class is back in full swing, the students’ return has brought a special energy to our Eastside Campus. I have enjoyed getting to know the students and faculty, and last night at our Class 9 Speed Networking Event, I met for the first time members of the incoming class that will start in January of next year.

The Class 9 Speed Networking Night provided students with a great opportunity to meet fellow classmates, exchange stories, and trade business cards. Although the cohort does not officially begin until January 2009, this get-together fostered some great connections and sparked enthusiasm for the year and a half to come. To the benefit of the students, the networking doesn’t end here. TMMBA students have the opportunity to participate in Speed Networking with other students and alumni each quarter. Another event is just around the corner!
