Fellows from the Spring and Autumn 2016 batches were grouped into teams to sell products and services to their part-time MBA peers for the CBF Marketplace on Nov. 19. High-performing teams were recognized with titles such as the Revenue Award (for high revenues with low costs), the Brand Equity Award (for successful implementation of brand strategy), and the Start-up Award (for an entrepreneurial idea that effectively addresses an area of need).

Holding down a full-time job and being a dog owner is tough. Couple that with traveling to Chicago on a weekly basis for a part-time MBA program makes matters even tougher for students like Tiffany Yang ’19 and Andrew Kerosky ’19, who brought their dogs to Chicago from Cincinnati, Ohio, and Fort Worth, Texas, respectively for the CBF football game.

“It’s tough managing the various competitions for your time,” Kerosky says.

Yang agrees. “Sometimes the decision is like, do you do work? Do you do homework? Or do you take care of your dog?”

“You end up having to multitask a little bit,” Kerosky adds. “Hang out with the dogs, while doing homework. It’s not easy.”
