One cool thing about the BYU MBA program is the Morning Market Call program. It provides an opportunity for MBA students to discuss issues related to the program, interview guests from a variety of companies and get more comfortable being in front of a camera. Recently there have been a couple of programs discussing the tech treks that BYU MBA students go on to visit tech companies in Seattle and Silicon Valley.
In the first program Melanie and Ryan discuss their visit to Silicon Valley.
In the second video Panu and Jared discuss their trip to Seattle.
I went on the Tech Treks last year and found them really useful in getting to see a bit more of the internal cultures of the companies we visited. For me the most useful aspect was being able to meet face to face with the BYU alumni who I’d previously spoken with on the phone and get to know them a bit better.
