This year, I was invited to serve Purdue University Fort Wayne. What a fantastic opportunity to facilitate discussions with colleagues and help develop current and emerging business leaders. I have 50 MBA students enrolled in two sections of strategic cost management this fall. We will emphasize strategic planning and thinking as we continue to build upon a solid foundation of business and financial management.

As an alum of Dulin, Ward & DeWald; DWD Technology Group; Katz, Sapper & Miller (Indianapolis); Baden, Gage & Schroeder (intern); and Parkview Health (corporate office), I look forward to a breadth of for profit and nonprofit conversations with our students. And still engaged with clients as a practitioner assisting organizations with executive, business, financial, knowledge/information management, and data analytics needs, I hope these continued engagements will provide additional lenses for students.

Over the course of the semester, students will learn about and develop skills in:

  • Strategy
  • Sound financial management
  • Tools such as the balanced scorecard and SWOT analysis
  • KPIs and performance measures
  • Data analytics
  • Information systems
  • CFO versus controller
  • Changing role of financial executives and their role as a member of executive leadership teams
  • Communication
  • Purchase versus buy decisions
  • Capital budgeting
  • Budget planning and action
  • Collaboration
  • Leadership and management

Many of our conversations will center around what students are experiencing and seeing with the organizations that they serve in addition to theoretical studies. We will leverage resources available through the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Chartered Global Management Accountant, Financial Executives International, and Indiana CPA Society. As financial executives and managers have increasing roles supporting direct reports, we will also discuss human resources (NIHRA) and risk management.

Check back often and feel free to subscribe to our newsletter! We will continue to share knowledge with the business and nonprofit community.
