Tech MBA Minute with Stephen Clark, WXYZ Channel 7 (Detroit)


This blog post kicks off the Tech MBA Minute video series produced by the School of Business and Economics at Michigan Technological University’s Tech MBA Online program. Through this series we will talk with business leaders, the media, and thinkers to discuss ideas that power business.

Today’s conversation with Stephen Clark WXYZ Channel 7 News anchor (Detroit, MI.) focuses on how traditional media is changing and its parallel with the automotive industry. Detroit has changed dramatically since the height of the automotive boom. The automotive sector is not the only industry that has been impacted by the economy, technology and globalization, traditional media has been forced to change like many other industries.

Stephen Clark is a non-traditional man when it comes to media he uses twitter, he is on Skype and even blogs to tell an engaging story that a wired generation wants to hear.

This week Ruth Archer, director of graduate business programs at Michigan Tech, was featured in the article How Online Universities Really Stack Up on Janine Swenson’s blog found at  Internet Evolution aims to view the future of the Internet through a prism of pragmatism – acting as an anti-bubble that eliminates hype, cuts through the ‘conventional wisdom,’ and provides an overdue dose of realism about where the Internet is headed. The blog discussed online education and included input from a professor, course developer, and student.

“It’s my passion to promote the Tech MBA programs and the MS in Applied Natural Resource Economics,” says Archer in her biography. Archer is quoted on the blog as saying “…a fully online MBA cohort program for Fall 2010 will duplicate the college’s traditional MBA program and share its accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Content delivery will be through a standard LMS along with a range of online activities. The university hopes the accreditation gives credibility to a fully online program that will attract students.”

The blog concluded that “…online learning that provides valuable, relevant content can work for students who have an intrinsic love of learning, along with self-motivation and discipline to work through and assimilate the subject matter.”
