Letter from the MBAA President

Greetings Friends,

I hope your holiday season was warm and enjoyable. On behalf of the BW MBAA Executive Council, I wish you all a fulfilling, happy, and prosperous 2020.

I am proud to communicate that in the last quarter of 2019, the MBAA, during our 10-Year Celebration, successfully completed the process of endowing our funds with Baldwin Wallace University. In partnering with the University at this level, we have secured a sustained operation for the future, allowing us to further our mission and continue to pursue meaningful connections across all MBAA initiatives.

As we turn the page to the new year, it is staggering how quickly the calendar fills up. We’re looking forward to a busy 2020 as we build our relationship with the School of Business across the Career Catalyst Series as well as other events. To that end, the Economic Insights panel is right around the corner (January 29) with a number of other professional development opportunities, including the MBA Association's signature Dessert and Dialogue events, to follow. Stay tuned!

We are also excited to announce the return of our long-running Master’s Masters Golf Outing event. Pricing, schedule and sponsorship information will be communicated in upcoming issues and invitations. Please mark your calendars for Monday, June 8 as our tournament returns to Westfield Country Club and the re-imagined South course.

The MBAA Executive Council will be focused on new ways to engage with BW partners and the broader community with an aim at synergizing and (since we’re all Yellow Jackets after all) cross-pollinating to drive a robust network both in person and virtually. Have an idea? Let us know.

As always, leadership opportunities within the MBAA are always open to you. I invite you to join our LinkedIn Group and reach out to me personally ( to learn more.

Looking forward,

Scott Monaco '10
President, BW MBA Association

Join Us for Economic Insights on January 29  
Presented in concert with the BW School of Business’s Career Catalyst Series, the eighth edition of Economic Insights will again feature Michael Weidokal ’94 (Executive Director of the International Strategic Analysis [ISA]), Professor Kevin Jacques (former economist with the U.S. Treasury and Boynton D. Murch Chair in Finance at BW), and Bill Koehler (CEO of Team NEO) offering analysis and commentary at the global, national, and regional levels respectively.

Mere weeks into the new decade, already eventful on a global scale, this event promises an engaging panel and dynamic discussion with no shortage of topics to touch upon. As a featured panelist, Jacques is looking forward to underscoring the correlation between election trends and economic cycles. “It is only in election years where the economy’s real impact is highlighted,” he said.

An extended and enhanced networking hour before the panel will provide access to BW representatives and panelists. Resources also will be available to attendees wishing to learn more about the BW MBA and other graduate business programs, including new graduate business certificate programs

This premier event is complimentary but may reach capacity. Reserve now to secure your spot. We look forward to seeing you!
