2020 UW MBA Consortium Faculty Meeting

Nearly 40 faculty and administrative staff from across all the Consortium partner campuses gathered for the 4th Annual UW MBA Consortium Faculty Meeting, January 16-17, 2020, at the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells. Each year, attendees come together to participate in strategic planning activities as well as professional development. During this year's meeting, faculty completed tasks in a course to learn best practices for teaching their online courses in Canvas. Three instructors also gave presentations offering tips for increasing engagement in online classes. Faculty also reviewed and gave feedback on plans for the MBA program updated curriculum, which launches this fall. Their feedback is being used to help define and refine new coursework.

Consortium News

In some newsletters, we'll publish updates featuring the UW MBA Consortium or its faculty, staff, and students in the news. Following are some recent highlights:

Mark Wehde Promoted to Chair at Mayo 

Mark Wehde, who teaches MBA 711 and MBA 764, was recently appointed chair of the Mayo Clinic Division of Engineering. His team of 70 engineers and technical staff leverages technology to help Mayo Clinic's healthcare teams provide better care for their patients. He has also been appointed as fellow of Mayo Clinic Academy of Educational Excellence.

Melissa Bublitz Researches Art

Dr. Melissa Bublitz, who teaches MBA 755, wrote an article that appeared in the Journal of the Association for Consumer Research (JACR), called "Collaborative Art: A Transformational Force within Communities."

Chad Cotti Studies E-cigarette Taxes

Dr. Chad Cotti, who teaches MBA 782, was among a group of researchers who recently explored the consequences of taxes on electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes. The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health and was published online by the National Bureau of Economic Research. The study, titled "The Effects of E-cigarette Taxes on E-cigarette Prices and Tobacco Product Sales: Evidence from Retail Panel Data" found that when e-cigarette taxes are implemented, smokers tend to turn to traditional cigarettes.
