John Angevine, Tiffany Win, and I had the opportunity to interact with service members and their family members looking for information on attending school at the Fall 2014 Education & Career Fair at MCCS Henderson Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall near Arlington, VA.

The day-long Education and Career Fair was hosted by the Education Services Office.

The mission of the Education & Career Services at Henderson Hall is to stimulate the lifelong learning process by effectively communicating the educational programs offered and to provide the requisite information, tools and support to the learning process. (source)

Brookings Executive Education (BEE) has found that the leadership skills that led to advancement in the military are not always the same ones that lead to promotion in civilian government service. The Master of Science in Leadership (MS-Leadership) degree provides the skills, aptitude, and mindset needed to lead change and deliver mission success in Joint, Interagency, Intergovernmental, and Multinational environments.

BEE proudly supports the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Yellow Ribbon Program. Honorably discharged veterans with at least 36 months of active duty could be eligible for 100% tuition benefits.


We welcomed back our second year MBA students as their classes began on Tuesday, September 3.  Part of “Re-Orientation” was a new event that brought together the second and first year MBA students called a “Reverse Career Fair”.

The event was organized by the Graduate Business Student Association (GBSA) and sponsored by the Weston Career Center.  Second year students were grouped according to their career platforms and spread around the Anheuser-Busch Dining Hall in the Knight Center to facilitate conversations about their summer internships and experiences.

First year students were encouraged to mingle with the second year students to get to know more about those experiences and begin making connections with their classmates.  Based on the volume level of the room, conversations were flowing well in to the evening.
