Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Twenty students in the University of Wisconsin-Madison Master of Business Administration program will travel to Omaha on Thursday to share a meal and an experience of a lifetime with Warren Buffett, chairman and chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway and one of the world's most successful investors.According to Dan Walker, a student in the applied security analysis program and the lead organizer for the Wisconsin students, every year 24 different schools from across the country are invited to send 20 students to one of four Buffett luncheons. Walker accepted essay applications to determine the final 20 students from Wisconsin."Lots of philanthropists give of their money, but he gives of his time as well," Walker said.The day will begin with a tour of Nebraska Furniture Mart, the largest home-furnishing store in North America and a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary.Students will then travel to Buffett's office, where they will have two hours to ask any questions about investing or other topics."The fact that we get the opportunity to ask any question we want is a once in a lifetime opportunity," Walker said.
