BY DAN BROWN – INCOMING EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
As we say goodbye to an exceptional academic year and begin to look ahead, I wanted to say that I am really excited to be the next Editor-in-Chief of the Anderson Exchange. Mike Hirshman has done incredible work bringing people together and driving this program forward, but he will now be moving on to serve as president of the Graduate Student Association. He and I have been working on the transition this quarter and we are eager to take the Exchange to the next level in the coming year.
Our team’s biggest challenges this past year were to resurrect this celebrated publication, figure out the logistics behind bringing your voices to print, build out an exceptional team, and finalize our operations. In entrepreneurial parlance, this would be our beta. For the 2014-2015 academic year, we look forward to rolling out a more refined, impactful product and will work on being more consistent on a monthly basis, sourcing monthly content that brings together both first and second year perspectives, along with those from the FEMBA program and the entirety of the Anderson world. We are fortunate to have an outstanding team that is prepared to continue to put in the time and effort that make this paper possible.
We also look forward to hearing your feedback, because our goal is to put out the best and most relevant product possible – and most importantly, one that you want to read. The team relaunched The Exchange to provide a forum for thoughtful discussion of topics here at Anderson and to spotlight peers who are doing phenomenal things. We have done that over the last year, and in many ways the Exchange has done that over the last forty years. We look forward to continuing that legacy next year.
