Olin’s Dean Mike Mazzeo, just a few months on the job, has stories to tell and insights to share. Join us as Dean Mazzeo discusses his book "Roadside MBA: Back Road Lessons for Entrepreneurs, Executives and Small Business Owners" and reflects on ways he’ll apply his experience and expertise to take Olin to new levels. 

His Roadside MBA book chronicles stories of mom-and-pop businesses across the country and translates their MBA strategy frameworks for owners of small and medium-sized businesses. It’s been described as “timeless lessons for every executive, entrepreneur and business student” by Bloomberg BusinessWeek and “fresh examples to illustrate the basic tenets of MBA theory” by The Economist. 

In addition, Dean Mazzeo will provide initial thoughts on leading the school and tapping into the community’s enthusiasm to positively impact Olin and all its stakeholders.
