Html/Article/Image/img/@alt

Mikhail Jackson (MS, SCM, '17) has achieved much in his 12-year military career. He has risen to the position of Captain in the United States Army, and in his most recent job before school commanded a 160-soldier support company. He has built a solid expertise in logistics by managing the distribution of fuel, ammunition, water, and repair parts — over 1,300 pieces of rolling stock and commodity equipment valued at $45 million — for the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team.

At the Neeley School of Business, we expect our MBAs to be outstanding scholars, excellent colleagues and good stewards of the University's reputation. But we also understand that our MBAs are individuals. By developing experiential learning programs and constantly striving to make them ever more enriching, our faculty and staff remain committed to each student's personal and professional growth.

C-Level Confidential Dinners are integral to Neeley's educational mission. Conceived by P.D. Shabay, a Neeley School alumnus and retired Bell Helicopter executive, these Dinners have been a fixture of TCU's MBA culture since 2008. Each dinner provides a rare opportunity for groups a dozen students to sit down with a senior executive to talk candidly about industry trends. Through these conversations, students also learn about the challenges upper-level executives face in their decision-making process. Each C-Level Confidential Dinner is also a great opportunity for TCU MBAs to make an impression and grow their professional network.
