A group of students from the Wake Forest University Schools of Business are set to board a plane Thursday, Jan. 13, to travel to Omaha, Neb., where they will spend two days meeting executives from Berkshire Hathaway, including Warren Buffett.
This year, roughly 20 students from the classes of 2010 and 2011 were selected to attend. Matt Clewis (Charlotte MBA 2010) was largely responsible for putting this year’s trip together.
The group will have a busy schedule, and we are going to provide online updates, pictures, etc., as participants share their experiences. More information will be available on the Schools of Business website as well.
Tentatively, our students have the following items lined up for Friday, Jan. 14.
A Q&A and tour at Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary Nebraska Furniture Mart
A Q&A session with Warren Buffett in The Kiewit Building. Attendees were required to read The Snowball prior to traveling. They will dine with Buffett after the session.
- A Q&A and tour of Borsheims, another Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary
Congratulations to the students who were selected and safe travel over the next few days!
