On a day when I was going to come out of EMBA Blogger hibernation to post about Visa/Mastercard and Antitrust, I had an email conversation that I just can't help but get into the MBA Blogosphere.  No names, to protect the ignorant. 

I was curious to know how many hours per week you all typically allocate for each project stage? For a new project, our Project Manager is breaking down...

As the C-Q EMBA class of 2014 closes the books on Macroeconomics; analysts, business people and lawmakers discuss the impending fiscal cliff.  I can't help but think about Ori's philosophies on economics and cliff jumping.   In his class, we learned about Keynesian theory and the idea that the government can help the economy along by metering its spending in response to changes in private sector spending.  As we head toward the fiscal cliff and look forward to a comprehensive reform, I hope our legislators remember that Keynes assumed a long-run balanced budget.  Without a balanced budget, the government does not have the yin of surplus to balance the yang of deficit as the economy needs more G to counter drops in S and I.   Whether we leap off the nearing cliff or not, now is an exciting time for MBA candidates to watch the news and see the varied concepts we learn in the classroom coming together in a complex national story that affects companies and institutions everywhere....

Hi, I’m Vince.  I’m part of the San Diego EMBA boardroom.  I’ve been in San Diego since the Marines brought me here in 2000.  I liked it so much, I decided to stay.  After getting wise to my homesteading, the Marines gave me an offer that I could refuse and I resigned my commission after 10 years of service. 

I had a varied career in the Marines.  As a tactical helicopter pilot, I served aboard ship, and was part of the first conventional units to land in Afghanistan.  After returning from my first deployment, I transferred units and served as an aviation specialist with the infantry for the march to Baghdad.  I returned to Iraq with the infantry a second time and participated in stabilization and combat operations in the Al Anbar province.  I finished my service flying executive airplanes and business jets back in San Diego, except for a short deployment where I flew throughout the Middle East from our Doha, Qatar base.

Since joining the civilian world, I have been working in small business – in...
