MacB CEO Sid Fuchs Provides Keynote Lecture for MBA Leadership Series at George Mason University
DAYTON, Ohio, September 8, 2016 – MacAulay-Brown, Inc. (MacB), a leading National Security company delivering advanced engineering services and product solutions, announced today that MacB President and CEO Sidney E. Fuchs was a guest lecturer at George Mason University (GMU) on Wednesday, September 7 at the Fairfax campus. Mr. Fuchs spoke to more than 30 graduate students enrolled in the Leadership course of the MBA program at GMU’s School of Business, which was ranked among the top 100 undergraduate and part-time MBA programs in 2015 by U.S. News & World Report.
George Mason University is located near Washington D.C. in the heart of Northern Virginia’s technology corridor, with four campuses in Virginia and one in Songdo, Korea. It’s the state’s largest public research university, with an enrollment in the U.S. of more than 34,000 students from 130 countries.
Mr. Fuchs spoke to the class as part of the MBA Leadership Series, developed by Executive-in-Residence and Professor of Practice Dr. John Hillen, in order to expose graduate candidates to the Washington D.C. region’s best business leaders. His keynote lecture encouraged students to discuss the concepts, strategies and techniques needed to develop and build strong strategic networks throughout their careers.
“One of the main points I try to convey to graduate students is to always view professional networks as tangible assets that become more powerful over time,” said Fuchs. “When they walk away from the program, I want them to remember that building relationships in both business and life is all about trust, service and value. It’s not about what they can get, but what they give back that has real staying power.”
“Sid’s dynamic leadership style is always welcome during this series. He inspires our students and has published an influential book on leadership networking,” said Dr. Hillen. “To hear first-hand from an accomplished CEO and author gives our MBA students a competitive edge in business, no matter what they do in the future. Sid conveys a powerful message that easily translates into real-life scenarios, all while infusing energy and enthusiasm beyond the standard classroom curriculum.”
