Dean Francois Ortalo-Magne Presents to Undergraduate Students by aputterman

Did you miss the Accenture Leadership Center's Kick-off event with the new Dean of the Wisconsin School of Business, Francois Ortalo-Magne?

Last week, the Accenture Leadership Center hosted its Fall Semester Kick-Off with none other than Dean Ortalo-Magné. He gave our students plenty of advice for making the most out of their undergraduate career and beyond. Dean Ortalo-Magné posed three actions that students should take to better strengthen our community:

  • Present ourselves as a premium brand
  • Open the door to greater coordination
  • Building life-long relationships
The Dean also spoke to students about The Wisconsin Idea and his future plans for building a better school. This included using our resources, partnering with one another as students and alumni, UW, and the World, as well as working to create an exceptional educational experience. “There is something really special about the Wisconsin School of Business” said Dean Ortalo-Magné as he concluded his presentation.
