Former GE chief-turned-management-guru Jack Welch loves you. He honestly loves you. Or so he says in a recent article in BusinessWeek about 20-somethings and why they are a benefit to the business community.
Between papers here at my MBA program at Vandy, its always cool to check my RSS feeds and see an article like his that says what we’ve been saying all along; 20-somethings are the next great business tool.
I’ll let you read the entire article (click here >>) but there was a snippet I wanted to point out:
“Of course, not every Gen Yer we’ve met is hankering to be an entrepreneur, but many still want to change the world through where and how they work, exuding an optimism more reminiscent of the 1950s than any other era in recent memory.”
It feels great to be an MBA student at this period of time and to anyone who is wondering if ambition is worth it, just ask Jack and he’ll tell you it absolutely is.
PS: In case you’re wondering; exams are next week – wish me luck!
